It is slowest but still very fast.... (I'd like to say it's not worth the hassle and price premium for NVMe.)

Not much more (I don't think I need 1TB)

If you write the exact details of your system it's probably possible to find which slots it has and what drive types are supported.
And if it isn't natively supported you can use a PCI slot for it (with an adapter)

Then maybe get this 500 GB for $77.99. Still quite a lot cheaper, and certainly if you'd need an adapter (like https://www.amazon.com/Lycom-DT-120-PCIe-Adapter-Support/dp/B00MYCQP38/).

These are the expansion slots.
Will it support m.2 NVMe? or only SATA?

I see one for $69.99 sounds pretty fast, and great ratings. What do you think?

Not sure about this brand and their reliability. (And if you go with lesser known brands you can get 2.5" drives for even cheaper... like https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07PGC3JKQ/ref=twister_B07LFM1TH7)

But this is a SATA with upto  520/450MB/s
Which is a joke compared to NVMe,

I see you really don't think nvme is that much better.

It's obviously way faster, I just think that as far as actual user experience it will not make as big of a difference.

I hear you.
So you don't think I'll see an actual difference  when using PS between SATA and NVMe?

Correct. Though to be honest it's more of an educated guess than it is statistical.
