With the RTX coming out soon and GPU prices dropping this is my budget! I'd like a black and blue build with RGB/Blue lights all over it thanks!

There is a new version of the tomahawk (B350 tomahawk plus). Also, switch out the hybrid drive for a $50-$60 240gb ssd and a 1tb wd blue.
Thanks, but I'll go with vagabond139's idea. I knew about FuzeDrive for some time, but completely forgot about it after a while since I thought the free version was limited to X470 boards, but it works with B450 as well.
Oh. I didn’t know that there was b450.
I would go for a 400 series board instead and get a 2TB HDD plus a 120GB SSD and use storemi instead to make a hybrid drive with 120GB of SSD space vs. just the 8GB that the Firecuda has. Or you could just buy Fuzedrive(the thing storemi is based on) for $20 with support up to a 128GB SSD. For more than that you would need a 400 series board for storemi(256GB) or buy fuzedrive plus ($60 for 1TB)
Yes, that could work.
120GB SSD + 2TB Hard Drive. Use FuzeDrive software from the free included AMD Ryzen software so you can combine your high performance SSD with 2TB HDD storage into a single fully automated volume. FuzeDrive software is included for free with all 400 series motherboards. It's a technology similar to Intel's Optane, but vastly more affordable. That 120GB can go a long way when the contents are optimized for maximal effect. In fact, 120GB is room for millions of small files that make up your applications, games, and operating systems.
Glad to help.
