Would it be wise to have m.2 drive as the only storage device in my build?

Would it be better to have a 2.5" standard ssd instead or combination of both?

That is entirely up to you.
I prefer a minimum of 2 devices. One for the OS and Apps that need to be reinstalled when the OS gets reinstalled and the other for apps that will work without needing to be reinstalled; Such as Steam games. I keep my library on a separate drive then the OS. If I need to reinstall the OS, I just link the library after I reinstall the Steam client. {Steam client needs to be installed with the OS install so it's on C:}

If you need 2 TB of space, check out Intel's pricing on the 660P M.2 NVME drive...

If you want the blistering sequential reads/writes numbers, look no further than the Samsung 970 EVO Plus...(it costs 50% more, at least..)
