Can you put a Pcie Express (4x) To m.2 Nvme Adapter in a Dell Inspiron 3847 MT?

@LPlusRatio​ The specs are more clearly listed at hardware - corner here. The slots are PCIe 2.0 x 16 and PCIe (2x) PCIe 2.0 x 1. It will not boot from the M.2 NVMe SSD. And considering that they are 2.0 slots the performance will be restricted.

You have Two x1 PCIe slots and a x16 slot for the video card. You need a x4 slot for the adapter and if you have or are planning to have a video card then that adapter would not work assuming the adapter needs a x4 slot.

@JOcean​ I see I thought That a Dell Inspiron 3847 Had a pcie 4x Not 1x Slot But Even So if i had a Nvme To pcie 1x would the Nvme m.2 Ssd Boot? If i Put A Nvme Ssd in the Slot?

If you're looking to speed up performance by installing an SSD, you could consider a 2.5" SATA SSD.  Won't be as fast as an NVME SSD, but still faster than a SATA HDD. 

Crucial, amongst others, makes SATA SSDs, all the way up to 4T capacity, that should be compatible with your Inspiron 3847.

@LPlusRatio​ OK let me correct something after doing a Google search. According to this forum page it can be done with a BIOS update which is needed to use the x16 slot. If you have a GPU in the x16 slot then it cannot be done. A bit of back and forth on the aforementioned page so read it carefully.
