Just wanted to make sure there were no compatibility/things I should know before

I buy my new computer. I've check this board a bit and saw some build around my price range. I changed some stuff up so that I can make the most use of my Amazon Prime membership for the free 2day shipping. I just wanted to know if EVERYTHING I'll need (like cords and stuff?) will be in there, I wondered if this Case will work well, if 1 8gig ram is somehow worse than 2x 4 ram and that's pretty much it. I think it's relatively maxxed out in quality to dollar because of what others have already said to other users, but feel free to give any advice on that.

Also, a friend told me to be careful of static. Is there anything I should know/do while/before building?

Nice build. You can wait until that MSi video card goes on sale. I've seen it for $300 recently.

When putting it together, just make sure you touch the case (bare metal part) periodically before and during the build as to not build up static electricity in your body.

Also, yes, the motherboard and PSU will include all necessary cables.
