I have a question about choosing an SSD hard drive on the PCI slot. I see OCZ RevoDrive that is a PCI card and directly connects the storage chips to the motherboard via single x4 interface.
On the other hand, I see an XPG Gaming S10 which can not be connected directly to the PCI slot. Therefore, I have to by a second converter/adapter like this to first mount XPG on the board and then mount the board on the PCI slot.

Is there any consideration for that? I assume that having a converter in between will degrade the performance. Am I correct?
