Hello,

This will be my first SSD drive so I need little help.
My motherboard is MSI b450 tomahawk with ryzen 5 2600.
Does it support Kingston A2000 500GB? Is this a good choice? I just need something for everyday use, nothing extraordinary.

Do I need to update BIOS in order to install new SSD?
Do I have to enable some options in BIOS after installation of ssd? Or ssd will work without messing with bios?

Is WD Blue 3D SSD NAND 500GB better choice, they are almost about same price.

Thanks in advance

Your motherboard will support the Kingston A2000 without any issues. It is a M.2 NVMe drive that is decently fast. Another option in that price range would be the HP EX920. Since the NVMe are within a couple dollars of the SATA SSD, go with the NVMe ones.
