Solved! What M.2 drive

Hi everyone, I'm looking for some more storage to run the new Microsoft Flight Sim 2020 from. It doesn't need to be crazy fast, a couple more seconds loading time isn't going to be worth a massive price premium for me.

I'm running an Asus ROG G752VS gaming laptop. I've opened it up and found a spare m.2 slot, fitting a 2280 size drive and it says "PCIE only" on it.

What drives should I be looking at that won't break the bank?

Given that it's PCIE only, what types of drive will be compatible? (cheap and a bit slower is fine!)

Thanks!
