The PC already has a 180gb SSD Hard Drive which I dont want to ugrade. I would like to install M.2 SSD card into the spare slot.
It supports 2242/2260 M.2 SSD with PCIe 2x2. I am looking to go upto 500GB-1TB of storage but I dont find much options available in market. Are below products compatible, which one is recomended ?

The M.2 slot will accept basically any M.2 PCIe SSD as storage extension.
However, booting from the NVMe drive can be a problem. I wrote details here https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/What-M-2-SSDis-comp-with-my-ei...
Drives like the WD SN520 exist as 512GB M.2 2242 PCIe version and cost around 100 USD.
