If you are on a tight budget for the hardware that you wish to use then an SSD is going to be a better buy as you will get more storage capacity for less money.

If you wish to use a drive in a manner that uses significant disk read/write actions like 4K video editing then a M2 NVME should be considered as a very worthwhile purchase.

NVME benchmarks are impressive over a good quality SSD, but in operating loading and application loading times are not always anything like as fast as benchmarks suggest. Most apps are not going to load any faster on NVME as they will on SSD.

Prioritize your computer use and then budget for the most suitable hardware for your requirements.

A decent SSD capacity and a 16GB RAM kit that suits your motherboard would be my way forward. :thumbup:
