They are going to act fine with it but might be faster on your Intel SATA II ports.

If I remember correctly the PCIe X1 ver 2.0 interface would limit you to 5Gb transfer rate. The samsung is a great drive. Unfortunately there is nothing that can be done with the Marvell controller.
I am pretty sure you will be happy with your upgrade even at SATA II speeds.

There are PCIe x4 SATA3 add-in cards, but they are generally >$100.
