You won't notice. If you are going to upgrade, go with a bigger ssd.

SO say i have a upcoming build and i can't really budget a new hdd for storage for a while would it be advisable to use the 256gb M4 as storage and replace it with the 840pro since i have the 840 pro just lying around right now.

Use what you have. Just put the larger drive in which ever device you need more storage. Performance wise you will not notice anything between the two. No reason to buy an 840 to replace an M4.
