it's only $50 for the adapter to double my read/write speeds from 250's to 500

The other option is to get a Samsung 970 EVO Plus Series - 1TB PCIe NVMe - M.2 Internal SSD which the speeds are around 3,000

Any opinions on this route?

Thanks again
System response will be a lot snappier as will boot times with that 850 on the Acelsior card. And even faster with the nvme card. Either option won't give you more processing power though. The person to get in touch with here about the nvme business is Darryl Ramm as he's the expert on that.
