Yes you can get full PCIe speeds. However due to how read/write works with drives the chances of seeing the full potential of those speeds during normal use (which is mostly random read/write) is minimal.

However if the cost is 10 or 20 dollars between standard SATA SSDs and PCIe NVME drives, Id say spend the extra.

You likely will never reach the 3,500 MB/s transfer rates with a 970 Evo, but if you have the correct drivers, you will still be running around 2,000-2,200 consistently, which is 4 x 5 times faster than any 860 Evo.

In some issues, it can help to have the 970 Evo.

If you have the money, get the 970 Evo. If not, get the 860 Evo.
