Might want to pass on the specs to your current build like so:
CPU:
Motherboard:
Ram:
SSD/HDD:
GPU:
PSU:
Chassis:
OS:

You might want to offer us some more context with why you're looking for additional storage.

What would your objective be?
If you need additional storage, by all means, buy a m.2 pcie ssd.
The cost per gb is comparable to a conventional 2.5" sata ssd.

A m.2 pcie ssd will be faster in sequential benchmarks.
But the reality is that you would not really notice the difference.
Most of what we do is small random i/o and sata or pcie devices differ little in such performance.

These experts could not tell the difference:

I can't tell the difference personally except when copying large files. My two cents would be 1TB isn't much storage these days, you might as well have more if you can afford it, and if he's buying another drive there's not much reason not to get NVME.
