Hi. I have two 500gb m.2 nvme’s and I was wondering if they’d work ok on this ??
would they have to be the same make/model? And would they work as 2 HD? Or 1??
thanks for any help.

Adapter cards with two M.2 sockets, that is one for PCIe (NVMe) and one for SATA, require a controller chip on the PCB if you want to run them both through the PCIe slot. Otherwise, the SATA socket/drive will need to be connected physically with a cable to an on-board SATA port. If you want an adapter that handles two or more PCIe (NVMe) drives, it's much more complicated as the motherboard must have PCIe bifurcation support and you'll lose half your GPU lanes to the drives. With your board, there's not even an option for that (you'd lose the GPU entirely) and the chipset PCIe slot is further limited to x4 PCIe 2.0. In other words: no.
