Hey guys, i was just wondering if anyone of you knew the speed differences and maybe like a chart between a PCI ssd and a SATA ssd.. Is it that significant? and if anyone has found some 128GB pci ssd's that are worth it that would be greatly appreciated as well.

Can' tell you exactly, but I've been reading it is significantly faster.
Trouble is, there are not many out yet.

Faster? Apparently yes.
Faster enough to be worth it? That depends on your wallet.

It can be faster if you have PCIe V2 x2 lanes or higher

Do you have pcie lane to spare for this?

Keep in mind that intel 1155 & 1150 only have 16 pcie lanes to begin with and most enthusiasts prefer to dedicate them to the GPU.
Here are the specs on the i7-4770k straight from intel.
