M.2 as bootable drive on Gigabyte 970A-DS3P

Top Racer 2002

Hi. My SSD decided to "konk out" yesterday after spending money on some used parts to upgrade my computer (oh joy).
Since I'm going to upgrade later on to a brand new build (maybe next year) I was wondering if I could use a PCI-E controller card with an NVMe SSD as a bootable drive on my mobo or should I go for a standard SSD?

My specs are:

Gigabyte 970A-DS3P
8Gb 1866Mhz
Asus Radeon R7 250 1Gb GDDR5
Toshiba 2Tb 7200rpm HDD

Thanks in advance for any help.
