From 1150LGA to 1151. what about other hardware !

I want to change motherboard from 1150 to 1151 . to get a Nvme m.2 slot. that i dont have.

question is.. what about all my other components ? do i have to change them all aswell so all components fits 1151,
or does my parts fit 1151 ?

spec
Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4770K CPU @ 3.50GHz
tridentX G.skill16 GB F3-2400c10-8gtx ddr3
gigabyte gtx 960 g1 gaming gpu.
maximus vi hero mainboard
Microsoft Windows 10 (build 15063), 64-bit
corsair H100 cooler.

i want a m.2 Nvme SSD..
i know there is adapters for those. but will my mainboard accept it in PCI express 3.0 ?

    That also requires a new CPU and new RAM (DDR4).

    Just for an NVMe drive?
    Don't do that.

    Assuming US prices:

    Crucial MX300 275GB.
    $93
    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01IAGSD5O/ref=twister_B01IB47HBG

    Samsung 850 EVO 250GB
    $99
    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00OAJ412U/ref=twister_B00PRDMHLU

    500GB versions of those are around $150.

    Assuming your games are currently on an HDD, you'll see faster level load times. That's about it.

    If it is currently on the 840 EVO, and then you put it on the MX300....you will see basically zero difference.
    Similarly, if you were to somehow put that on an NVMe drive....no gaming difference.

    Get that Crucial if you need more drive space.

    hmm okay. i thought it would give a difference if i got battlefield 4 on a ssd for it self..

    then better cpu would help maybe?
    i have a i7-4770k 3.5ghz. oc to 4.2

    or what would help most.

    maximus vi hero mainboard currently

    corsair h100 cooler. currently

    tridentX g. skill 16gb ram.

    what to change for best possible performance in game. i feel my game is slow. its not reacting so quick as i want it to. maybe you could help me with it all tomorrow. check if you can do something to get my rig better :) im not sure my rig runs correctly. and stuff like that.
