Just buy an external wireless adapter. They're pretty cheap.

I'm going to say this bluntly because I don't think your listening to nearly anyone in this thread.
RESEARCH

There's no point in building a PC if you have no idea what each part does.
That's like swimming for the first time without someone watching you.
Or Skydiving without a Parachute.

Will it really hurt just going on google and looking for some videos that may help you?

And about the monitor. I have mine on a dual display (there are 3 display ports on the GPU) one on the 50" tv and one on the 32"
32" tv on a desk next to it. Both mirror the screen so I can use a controller on the couch and play or chill and watch movies/tv.

The audio is routed to my surround sound so I can have surround sound while I game.

Seriously you can't get too much monitor. Just get a 60hz 1080p monitor and that's all you want/need to play with this system

Monitors are extremely personal things like mouse and keyboards to some. You could get something like:

and be extremely happy with it. Hell if I NEEDED a monitor I wouldn't get anything more than that for my computer

Awesome! If you need anything most people here are helpful as hell and won't mind giving you some pointers. Barring the ones here for entertainment of course. I DO recommend hitting up youtube and just killing an hour clicking around at how-to videos if you feel a little overwhelmed. And people GENERALLY will only help those that help themselves. (That's just a general life lesson really) Again you CAN do this EASILY. The whole stigma that computer building is only for the super technical is outdated bull.
