Default Lynx Aurora 16 Or UA Apollo 16 Silver

Hello, I'm looking to upgrade my Black Lion modded (analog only) 2408 MK III for something with better conversion.
My system is a 2010 mac pro with 800 fire wire and Pcie running El Capitan, Pro Tools 2019 vanilla.

I've narrowed my choices to:
Lynx Aurora 16 with LT HD card and AES16e-50 Pcie card.
Apollo 16 Silver running firewire.

I'm leaning towards the Aurora but the cost is going to be around $2,300 all in. The Apollo can be had for around $1,200.

Does the Aurora work with Pro Tools vanilla via the PCIE card the same way my Motu does, or do I need Pro Tools Ultimate?
2nd, would the Apollo 16 silver have significantly better conversion as opposed to the Motu?

Both of these systems can be upgraded for Thunderbolt, so if I upgrade my mac I will be covered.
