This is my first time building a computer. Last time I got a computer I got it pre made from ibuypower. I was going to use parts from that computer and use them to build a new computer, but I decided that I want to get a whole new computer. The computer is mainly going to be used for gaming. I would also like the build to be upgradable in the future. I already have a monitor, mouse, keyboard , and speakers.

You'll have 10~15% benefit in games from win8 but you still can change it to win7!
But it's still personal preference!

Pcpartpicker shows that the motherboard has usb 3.0 headers, but the case that you chose doesn't have front panel usb 3.0 ports.

It's not a problem you can buy USB 3.0 front bracket http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA2V5... if you really need front USB 3.0 ports.

Probably no, this case includes front 120mm intake and rear 120mm exhaust fans but you can buy couple 200mm fans for front intake and top exhaust.

I think I am going to buy more fans once I am done building the computer.
I decided I am going to buy this build.
Since this is my first time building a computer do you have any advice you can give me
Should I buy a anti static wristband?

No, i think you don't have to buy it, while assembling just touch something metal for example case to discharge yourself, don't wear wool and last don't assemble on carpet, about fans you'll be fine with front 200mm intake one top 200m exhaust and rear 120mm exhaust otherwise your case will sound like helicopter!
