Disk benchmarks on SATA-connected SSDs usually top out in the 550MB/s range. Magnetic spinners top out around 200MB/s (sequential read/write, they are terrible at random operations). M.2 PCIe SSDs top out around 3600MB/s. The difference in response for disk-intensive applications is very noticeable. If you still have spinners, it's likely they are the main bottleneck for overall performance, especially with the new MOBO, CPU and memory.
I've been replacing spinning hard drives with SSDs in laptops for friends and family for several years. The difference in performance is noticeable, even if the replacement is just SATA. My "budget director" is still using a 10-year-old laptop that I swapped disks on and is happy with it (went from a 5400RPM spinner to a SATA SSD). Cost less that $70 to make it almost like a new laptop.
