Hi, today my question is... If I have this motherboard:
MSI FM2-A55M-E33 FM2 AMD A55 (Hudson D2) HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
this graphics card:
SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 6670 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Video Card (100326LP )
and this pci slot wireless adapter:
ASUS PCE-N15 Wireless Adapter IEEE 802.11b/g/n PCI Express 300/300Mbps Transfer/Receive Rate 64-bit WEP, 128-bit WEP, WPA2-PSK, WPA-PSK, WPS support
will I have a heat issues for the graphics card? Because the fan is like way behind and the wireless adapter is quite small. P

P.S. the GPU isn't big to take 2 thingy behind the case.
a c 257 V Motherboard
a b À AMD
a c 160 U Graphics card

You should be fine.

I think the more important question to ask here, is how much airflow are you getting in your case? That is usually a much bigger factor in temperature rather than your motherboard, or any other expansion cards.

My case is going to be a Thermaltake V3 Black Edition VL80001W2Z Black SECC / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case.

Is it good? Because there are lots of holes that will let the air circulate freely or do I need something better?

This case should be absolutely fine for the circulation of air throughout your build. You won't have any overheating issues as far as I can tell.
