G443 - SSD question

Options

I am a noob when it comes to computer tech, I own the PowerSpec 443 and am wanting to add a 2nd SSD -- the WD - BLACK SN850X 2TB Internal SSD PCIe Gen 4 x4 NVMe to this machine.

I do know to power it off before I start. Is there anything I need to know before I start i figured out when looking in the glass front the bottom right under the 4070 graphics card is the NVMe slot I use, is there anything else i need to do. and once I power it back up what do I need to do?

    The bottom right slot is good. The bottom left is Gen3 and that's a Gen4 drive. Other than that not really. You need to go into disk management and partition the drive to be able to use it. Right click Start, Disk Management. Doesn't matter if it's MBR or GPT with 2TB. Then right click, New Simple Volume and follow the wizard to partition it.
