Conversion of M.2 Sata to PCIe

So I just replaced my motherboard with an Asus x99a II, and found out it only accepts M.2 PCIe (Woops) So I Got a M.2 sata to PCIe adapter and was wondering 1) Will these actually work. (I mean does it plug and play fairy easily.) 2) How much of a performance hit will I take by using the adapter vsing just plug it right into a M.2 slot that does support Sata? 


For reference this is what I purchased: https://www.amazon.ca/IOCrest-SY-PEX50073-M-2-PCIe-Adapter/dp/B011D7A4CW/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1493172563&sr=8-5&keywords=m.2+sata+to+pcie

It just converts it to a normal sata III drive I think.

That will work but you could also get a cheaper sata only one. Google maps.2 to sata. They don't need to go into the pcie slots.
