What storage option should I choose

Trying to finalize my build https://pcpartpicker.com/list/z2ZmsZ

Choosing between the WD M.2 1TB only or the 1TB WD HDD w/ SanDisk 480GB SSD. The M.2 has a compatibility issue with the MOBO and I'm not really sure how much of an issue that causes.

All the issue is saying is that if you use an m.2 slot, you can't use all of your sata ports. You can still use the rest of your sata ports. It's no big deal.

I'd go for the 1TB SSD on general principles, though. If you need more space, you can add another SSD later.

I agree with @kschendel & I will also suggest you go with SSD as it is a better option then HDD. To know the exact differences between both the drives SSD & HDD, you can read out the below blog: https://www.stellarinfo.com/blog/ssd-or-hdd-choice-is-yours/

Hope it will help.
