I want to buy an m.2 solely for the purpose of using it as a boot drive for windows, I think 128gb should be enough for the os.
But I don't know which is the best quality and cheapest option. I want to be able to boot into windows quickly and not have my m.w slowed down with other apps as my current SATA SSD is.
Help is greatly appreciated

It is near impossible to find a 128GB M.2 drive, from a reputable company.
That is TooSmall...all the good manufacturers stopped selling them that small.

Even though people state "only for the OS"...it never works out like that.

What is your actual budget for this?

What are the full specs of this system?

And finally, faster boot time is a poor reason for an M.2 NVMe drive. There really isn't that much difference vs a good SATA III SSD.
