Hi, this is my first build and i want to see if all parts are compatible with the MSI B360M Gaming Plus DDR4 LGA1151. I mainly want to video edit, photoshop and play games with this build. I don't want to waste money on components that i will not use and at the same time build an affordable mid range pc.
Build as follows:

Motherboard: MSI B360M Gaming Plus DDR4 LGA1151
CPU: i7-8700(if the budget allows) or i5-8400
RAM: HyperX Fury 8GB (1 x 8GB) DDR4-2666 RAM (x2)
Storage: Seagate 2TB ST2000NM0033 / ST2000NM0055 Constellation ES.3 HDD
PSU: i am aiming for 500W is it enough?
GPU:
ZOTAC GeForce® GTX 1050 Ti Low Profile or mini
OS: Windows 10 Home 64 bit


I have 3 questions:
1- on the specs page they say that USB 3 has 2 ports and USB 2 has 4 ports Photo i only see 1 USB 3 and 2 USB 2?
2- can i connect 2 SYS fans?
3- can this build run without gpu (on board memory)


I'am very excited for my first build so i don't want to miss anything important.

2) Specifications read: 2 x 4-pin system fan connectors

3) i7-8700 specifications:
