Unsure what to buy for storage

So I'm trying to build a PC for a friend and he originally wanted Intel 660p 2TB drive. But reading a few reviews, it seems like its not a particularly great idea as the only drive. Yet I'm not exactly sure what he needs to get either. Since the 660p 2tb costs ~300$, thats the budget for storage. I was thinking about maybe getting M.2 nvme drive as the main drive and some bigger sata drive for storage. What do you think/suggest?

I'd get a 250gb nvme drive for windows and software, 1tb sata drive for games and 1/2 tb hdd for mass storage. But it all depends on what your friend uses his pc for and what he needs.

Hes gonna use it mostly for gaming and some photoshop....I dunno, I feel like SSD are so cheap that HDD are not needed anymore. At least 0.5tb HDD makes no sense imo
