I need help with this $500 Gaming Build

Hello everyone I'm new to computers and I'm going to be building this $500 Dollar Budget Gaming PC.

I went on PC Part Picker and put the pc together on there to know where to buy from, the problem is that
when I was all finished on the bottom of the page it says Compatibility Notes and then it says that:

ASRock H77 Pro4/MVP ATX LGA1155 Motherboard has an onboard USB 3.0 header,
but the Rosewill Blackbone ATX Mid Tower Case does not have front panel USB 3.0 ports.

My question is what does this mean? Does it mean I won't be able to use my USB ports because the case
doesn't support it? With my gaming computer I'm going to need to use USB so let me know if I need another case!

Thanks for your time and help!

it means the case is older model without usb 3.0 slots. It has only 2.0.
Just check the USB 3.0 Front Panel box on the right on pcpartpicker when looking for case and choose a case of your liking from there

Its not really a big deal. It just means that your board supports USB3.0, but your case does not. The front USB ports should be able to just plug into the motherboard.
