Hello people. I'm lost with all the technical details about bandwidth and adapters. I have this configuration:

OS Name Microsoft Windows 10 Home
Version 10.0.19041 Build 19041
Other OS Description Not Available
OS Manufacturer Microsoft Corporation
System Manufacturer MSI
System Model MS-7917
System Type x64-based PC
System SKU To be filled by O.E.M.
Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-4460 CPU @ 3.20GHz, 3201 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 4 Logical Processor(s)
BIOS Version/Date American Megatrends Inc. V1.13, 2/16/2016
SMBIOS Version 2.8
Embedded Controller Version 255.255
BIOS Mode UEFI
Adapter Description NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB
BaseBoard Product Z97 GAMING 5 (MS-7917)
BaseBoard Version 1.0

Do you guys think is worth it to install a Samsung (MZ-V7S1T0B/AM) 970 EVO Plus SSD 1TB - M.2 NVMe), if so, which adapter I need?. My idea is to clone the old Intel 240GB 530, so I can have a new OS drive. Also maybe upgrade video with GeForce RTX 3060 Ti . Thanks for your help.

i never bothered with an m.2 drive in my gaming 5 board. but i know it is pcie 3.0 x4 and will boot.

real world performance vs a nice sata ssd is minimal and not worth it if you simply want to do it, expecting a sudden massive gain.

but if you are adding more space anyway, then may as well go for it.

not sure what you mean by adapter though? none is needed, you simply put the nvme drive into the m.2 slot and boot er up :)
