Msata ssd or sata ssd ?

hi , looking to add a 1tb and 256gb to a mac pro but wondering if i will get better performance from msata drives in a quad pcie card

the mac pro already has a sata ssd system drive connected via conventional sata cable and i dont want to change that , this is for 2 drives that literally will ony be used to hold and read as sample drives providing samples and files for software samplers and large vst instruments and stuff like Omnisphere 2 etc

wondering if the pcie quad card and msata will allow a faster pair of drives than me installing 2 x conventional sata drives ? i know pcie ssd is suppose to be faster but has anyone used one of these Msata pcie cards ?

other option i looked at was this via pcie
