You don't have available PCIE x4 slot on your board.
Only 2 slots PCIE 2.0 x1.

Modern M.2 drives use PCIE 3.0 x4 connection.
That means - M.2 nvme drive with pcie M.2 adapter on your board will work 8 times slower, than it can.
All nvme speed benefit will be totally negated by a slow connection.

Not worth it. Use regular 2.5" sata SSD instead.

BTW SSD is not memory, it is storage. RAM is memory. Those terms can not be used interchangeably.

Ignore the theoretical magic of NVMe. Your motherboard is not built for it.
Unlikely you could even boot from a drive like that.

2.5" SATA III SSD.
Less hassle, less money.
And it will actually work.
