    The only thing I would say is that, by then, Ryzen 4k series is due to be released - not sure when but it'll be +- a couple of months so may be worth holding off till then.

    The only thing with buying a B450 motherboard is that you are restricting yourself to PCIE V3 instead of the PCI V4 on the x570 boards. GPU's like the AMD 5700* are already using PCIE V4 now and as you keep the base of the system for a long time it may be a limiting factor if you upgrade in the future!

    The other thing that is shouting at me is the use of an SSD instead of a M.2 SSD, the later is MUCH faster 550MB/s compared to 3500MB/s read/writes and much more IOPS. Get one as a boot drive at least, it's not night and day different in real use but definitely worth it. Again, if you get an X570 you can get an PCIEx4 M.2 SSD which is faster again..

    Also, by then, there may be other GPU/Motherboards(B550 are rumoured) options to take into account, so I'd leave those until last.
