I am going to be buying the MSI GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER and the MSI B550M PRO-VDH (WiFi).

Under the GTX 1650 Super specifications, it stated that its interface is PCI Express 3.0 x16. While the MSI B550M has 1 PCI Express 4.0 x16.

Will they be compatible together? Thanks in advance.

yes, all good mate.
the motherboard is capable of an even faster interface than the card.
bad analogy time. the card is a car, the motherboard is the road.
the speed limit on the road is higher than what you car can do.
all that means is that the board is ready for even newer faster cards.
