When I put the parts into pcbuild it gives me this 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." Does this mean that I won't be able to install the WD Blue drive?
It means if you use the Samsung SSD, from the six SATA ports; two will be disabled.
So that means you still have four slots left, one of which will be used for your WD Blue HDD. So you still have three ports for anything other than your SSD and HDD (like more SSD's, HDD's or optical drives).

You will be able to install the WD Blue HDD, Samsung SSD and still have ports left for three more SATA drives.
