Looking for a 1TB SSD around $100-$130

I'm looking for a 1TB SSD around $100-$130.  I don't really know whether to go with SATA or NVME.  I found some nice looking NVME drives for the price, but I'm not sure they are reliable enough.  Can I get some help on some good drives?

 

I already have a HDD btw.  I only need SSDs.  

Unless you're working with really big datasets, you'll notice very little difference between SATA and NVMe SSD's, so I'd go with one of the following.

 

Samsung 860 EVO 1TB - currently $150 USD, but can snag for cheaper when on sale

https://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Inch-Internal-MZ-76E1T0B-AM/dp/B078DPCY3T/

 

Crucial MX500 1TB - currently $115 USD, again can snag for cheaper when on sale

Edit: I will be mostly gaming on this with some other work, but mostly gaming.

You have a M.2 slot on your Motherboard?  I use the Crucial P1 1TB for my boot and gaming drive.   I game, browse the internet etc...  No issues so far.
