so ive been watching some videos before i order my stuff read some bits and bobs and really need help with 2 things here is my list of what im ordering (i know it aint that great but i dont need a power pc)
i have a case with a top mounted psu slot so i know i need a 12cm fan right?
DVD: Samsung DVD RW SH-224BB/BEBE 24x SATA Black
CPU&PROCESSOR:AMD CPU Sempron X2 190 AM3 Dual Core 2.50GHz 1MB 45W Retail
GRAPHICS CARD:Sapphire HD 6450 1GB GDDR3
MOTHERBOARD:Asrock motherboard AM3+ N68-VS3 FX mATX 2000MT/S
POWER SUPPLIES&PSU'S:CiT 700W Black PSU 12cm Dual 12v CE PFC Model 700UB
RAM:Corsair memory 4GB XMS3 Kit (2x2GB) DDR3 1333MHz 240 pin DIMM Unbuffered 9-9-9-24 RAM
EXTRAS
FANS: Coolermaster Case Fan 120mm SickleFlow Red LEDx2
WIFI CARD: TP Link Wireless N PCI Adapter WN751ND 150mb: will this go into the Pci slot?

my first question is, is this all comptable?
second question is, will the Psu come with everything i need for the hard drive? (except the sata cable i have one of those, accidently threw the power cable away)
third question is were my front panel is i have all these weird cables here is the list of the ones atop my head:
tpb+ tpa- gnd gnd1 power led+ power led- gnd gnd+ vcc1/usb/usb1(all together 3pin) vcc2/usb/usb1(same) what are these for and were to connect them in the motherboard specified above? i have read the online manual for the motherboard but does not say anything.
fourth question since my case is designed for a top mounted psu will that be ok facing downward?
i have a 500GB western digital caviar green
i any one has a suggestion could you please look on www.microdirect.co.uk and my budget is £200 and ive gone over by £10 at the moment (including two extra fans and a wifi card, im also looking for a new motherboard from the one posted or is that fine to use?
Thanks a bunch

EDIT: i dont need a power pc £200 is fine for me, i only play total jerkface's happy wheels :)  and minecraft, im using the machine for browsing the internet, i just want to take advantage of the £200 budget i have xD i might be able to go £250

Well for a PC of this sort a 700W PSU is way overkill; you'd be fine with 450W.

1> it's all compatible
2> a modern PSU will come with SATA power adapters
3> most of these are the front panel connectors, which should go to the front panel header on the mobo. The mobo manual should indicate the layout of the front panel header. The cables might be marked also if there's a manual that came with the case.
4> sure

Where will you be buying the parts from? Any new 450W ATX PSU should work though I'd advise a good brand (Antec, SeaSonic to name two).

Additionally to Q.3: USB headers plug into USB headers on the mobo, which should be marked as such. Usually the correct placement has the lettering facing up, though USB headers should have 4 pins. You list two GND pins in there, do they split from the same cables as the USB connectors if you trace it back?

Let me try to look up the proper diagram...

they are all one pin, except the vcc1/usb/usb1 and vcc2/usb/usb1 at the moment they arent conectd at all so none of the front panels are connected it doesnt bother me but i just wanted to know were they go :) 
and that diagram really helped finally understand that (: just saw it it looks exact the same as my mobo's one :)
