Default Please help me with my build, you geniuses!

Hey! I am trying to make a plan/earn the money to make my first computer build , but I need you help (please)! Here is what I am planning to buy; and while you are looking, could you tell me if they are compatible?

DIY Combo Kit from NewEgg
(How many USB ports would there be? I think I see four. Do they automatically work? Do you think it comes with instructions? Please help, if you can.)

Wireless Card (Do I need this? Will it work? Please help, if you can. If you have any other wireless suggestions/solutions that save me money, please let me know )

17" Monitor from UncleVic

Keyboard and Mouse

Do you think I should get a USB hub or something?? haha. Please help me. Does this all sound like a good deal for only about $700?

The USB ports will work (they need to be hooked onto the ones on the motherboard, though). Everything usually comes with instructions, but they are sometimes poorly translated into english.

If you are going to use wireless, you will most likely need a wireless card. That one you have selected will work.

That DIY combo kit from newegg is a liquid cooling kit and does not include a motherboard.

I bought a computer kit from Tiger Direct and it didn't come with instructions or a CPU fan. You will also need to buy an operating system or download a free one.

Just go to Newegg and pick out a DVD drive.
Look for one that is a SATA drive. You should be able to do it in the guided search to the left side of the page.
Any of these should do.
