    Had to jump ahead on this one. The kids' computer is dying. So, Have had to go ahead on this build earlier than planned.

    After debating over every detail with my husband, this is what we ordered.
    Will it work or did I mess up on compatability?

    Looks fine for a budget build. You shouldn't have any compatibility issues.

    I did notice one thing after reading feedback on the mb.
    There is only one case fan on the board. My case has 3 fans. What do I do about that? Is there another way to power the other two and if not, which one do I plug in?

    Yes, I am a n00b.

    You can plug in any one of your fans on the motherboard, and run the rest straight off the PSU. If your fans have Molex connectors (google it to see what they look like), you can anyways not connect them to the baord. If they have 3-pin connectors, you can buy cheap adapters for the other 2 fans.

    3-pin connector (one fan on motherboard, other two using adapter)

    Molex connector (all 3 fans connect directly to PSU):

    Thanks! The pics help me a lot. I rememebr more now from my first build as to what to look for. Great jump-start for my memory. :)

    Just wish they listed all the specs of the case on new egg so I would be able to find out if I need the adaptors so I could get them in time for my order's arrival.
