Hello
I have a msi B450m Gaming Plus and using already 2 SSD on Sata. Can I add an nvme ssd or there are compatibility issue using both sata and nvme m2?

Sure, but change the sata slot to SATA2 or sata3 because when you activated nvme m.2 the system will disable 2 sata port at least like sata0 and sata1

It will disable HDD too? I have 2 SSD and 2 HDD hooked to Sata
I think I will take a Sabrent 2280 1tb, they look like super speedy

I guess if its not stated then its good news.
Perhaps because this model only have 4 Sata ports.
I saw with motherboard that have 2 m.2 slots will slow down the pcie from x16 to x8, is this the case with 2 slots motherboards only?

Did you check his motherboard manual before saying what you said in this thread?

There is nothing saying that plugging a NVMe will disable SATA ports. Normally the manual includes that information when it does.
Considering B450 Chipset in midrange of AMD lineup it'll have some limitations in feature compare to X470 or even X570
Just some fact even from more premium B450 board like tomahawk or aorus or carbon have limitation
