im going to take a picture of all the screws i have.

the case manual says to tighten the mobo into the standoffs with "suitable" screws.

and i definitely have not lost any screws.. i only have 4 of those mobo mounting screws and countless smaller ones....

im contemplating whether or not i should go to lowes and buy some

I used the same screws that you use to hold the PCI slot covers and the power supply from the back.

If you only have four that fit the standoffs, you should put them in just the corners of of the motherboard. You could always take one of the screws and one of the standoffs to a hardware, auto parts, or electronics shops to see if they can hook you up with some screws.

The ones with the thick tips are motherboard screws. Well, what I use at least.
