First Time Build Help: Ryzen 5 B550 Build

Hey there!
This is my first time doing an AMD gaming build and I would love some advice. I put this parts list together, and I'm trying to figure out where I could possibly get the same level of performance for a better price tag. Any tips on storage would be appreciated; I want to have room for many different games, and it seems I have more than enough room for M.2s, 2.5" SSDs or hard drives.

    Honestly, this is a really good build all around and strong on the value category. The only major thing I would change would be upgrading the RAM to DDR4-3600 since that's the sweetspot for third gen Ryzen CPUs on memory speed. You could also go with a cheaper B450 motherboard if you wanted, but with the budget it seems you have here I don't think that's necessary. You also don't need those extra fans you included. The case you chose comes with three already. 

    You have a lot of flexibility when it comes to storage and you'll be able to use both M.2 and 2.5" SATA SSDs. Our Inland SSDs are a good value overall and I'm a fan of the Crucial drives I've used.
