Compatibility Notes Help?

So, I'm trying to build my first pc and as I was picking parts everything was fun and games until I added the motherboard. I got this compatibility note at the bottom and I'm not sure how important this is

Note:The motherboard M.2 slot #1 shares bandwidth with SATA 6.0 Gb/s ports. When the M.2 slot is populated, two SATA 6.0 Gb/s ports are disabled.

Any suggestions? or maybe a different motherboard suggestion?

Hi there. If it were me, with that budget I would go for something like this (I assumed 900$). Don't mind the compatibility notes, if you are not think of using all the sata ports. Is exactly as it says, if you use the M2 slot1 you'll lose 2 sata ports, usually the last 2. The motherboard you choose, has 6. You'll be ok with 4 (m2 + 4sata). The one I suggested has 4 sata ports, using that M2 port, you'll end with "m2+2sata" that still ok these days in my opinion.

Better MB, GPU, PSU and faster storage. (1tb has to be enough for now)

Hope it Helps
