Hello,
I want to use a M.2 SSD but my motherboard does not have a slot. My question does it make sense to buy an M.2 to PCIe x4 card?

If you can't return it than an adapter like this turns it into a normal SATA drive

Otherwise just return it, its of no performance benefit. It actually would not even work in a PCIe slot based adapter.
I think I will buy the adapter you mentioned as I only have one SSD with my OS on it and want to switch my HDDs with some more SDDs
