Hi,

I'm wondering if its worth going that direction.

Currently running Samsung SSD 830 series over sata port.

I'm wondering if buying pcie x4 adapter and installing m2 ssd would give me performance boost?

Any idea on speed differences?

Thank you in advance.
 
If you are on an old DDR2 system, i"d save your money and look to get something instead made within the last two years vice upgrading something from 10-12 years ago.... (especially since the SSD would likely not be bootable on chipset that old anyway even if an adapter were successful)
