Yes they do. But try to find a normal ATX board for the sake of better space for big video cards in the first place. The micro ATX boards may have less fan headers too.

3 case fan headers + the cpu fan dito are a good amount. Then you likely won't have to use fan, Y split adapters.

seams like an awesome build.
I am not a fan of your chosen mouse'n keyboard and monitor... but that's just opinion.

You don't need the anti static wrist band.
Just tough the side of the case before doing anything (that will discharge you from static) and avoid doing something that will quickly generate static to your body.

Yeah with the mouse and keyboard i wasn't really looking for quality, I just wanted the cheapest one possible to save money. In the future I'll definitely upgrade to a better keyboard and mouse.
What sort of monitor would you personally go with? Are ips really that much better or should I just get a good acer led monitor?

IPS are much better than TN in terms of image quality.
Unless it's a high quality TN. There some gaming monitors that are TN and still have a great image. But those are usually just as expansive (or more so) than a standard IPS monitor

Thanks. Much appreciated

(I posted "what are better" before you edited your post. Originally you said something like "they are crystal clear and are better" and I was confused at which type of monitor you were talking about.)

IPS is a display panel on LED monitors. Just like TN.
TN is a faster panel, hints why gaming monitors are always TN.
It's also cheaper. And it shows on low end even mid end TN panels.

IPS is a display panel with much better color reproduction, though it's more expensive and slower.
I favor IPS. The crystal clear image is fantastic.

Are you 99% sure that all the pc components will fit together?

Please get an SSD and a better case. That is my two cents.
