Default Help...

Which hard drive?

Newegg.com - SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

or

Newegg.com - Western Digital WD Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

Does this mobo have a built in sound card?
Newegg.com - ASRock Z75 Pro3 LGA 1155 Intel Z75 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Any tips or anything (Can't spend a dime more)(Plan on upgrading to i5 later on)

While both drives are good, I would pick WD over Samsung.

Do you know what Molex is? it's an old type of 4pin power connector. motherboards does not need to have it. A few does have it, but that is mostly to provide extra power to the PCI-E slots, in case of serious overclocking with multiple graphics cards or something else overclocking related.

It says that it does have USB 3 ports on the back. It has 2 of them. it also has 2 SATA3 ports.
i have not seen a motherboards with the new lineup of Chipsets from INTEL that didn't have USB 3 ports.

Don't mind that your graphic card has PCI-E 2.1. the 3.0 port is backwards compatible.

Newegg TV: Cooler Master Storm Enforcer PC Case Product Tour - YouTube!

8:22 in the video....

Does my mobo have a spot for that cord? I think there might be 2 one for one of the usb 3.0 port and one for the other 3.0 ubs port.

hahaha. i had that problem too when i build my first computer. though it was with my dad.
it is all compatible. you just have to not screw anything up. you most likely won't. just be sure you have seen a system being build from scratch so you are more prepared. check out some youtube videos where they put together a machine. you are gonna learn some things from your first build, and it's allot of fun. you also get that felling, "it's mine... i build it".
