You need to check with the manufacturer of the motherboard to see if you can use that SSD on a card.

Since you did not tell us your motherboard you will need to go to their site and see if it supports NVMe booting. Then you may need to update your BIOS to the latest if only later BIOS versions support it (assuming you want to boot to the SSD after installing. Then you will have to patch Windows 7 to allow you to boot to the NVME drive. If you plan do the patch, install the driers and then clone the existing drive, it will be easier, if you are planning to do a clean install then you will need to have the patch and drivers on a flash drive for the install or insert them in a customized install DVD.
Here was my path:
Yours may be different so do your homework.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
