So i was planning on building a computer and i was looking for some parts online and i stopped after looking at a few cases because i didnt know if all the parts i picked would fit in. If someone could please help me know that would be very much appreciated.
Cpu: Intel Core i3-8100
MoBo: ASUS ROG Stric b450-4
ram: 2x Hyperx fury 16GB 2666MHz
Graphics Card: MSI GeForce GTX 1050 TI
SSD: SK Hynix gold S31 500GB
PSU:CORSAIR AXi AX860i, 860 watt
cpu cooler: Cooler Master MasterLiquid LC240E RGB Close-Loop AIO CPU Liquid Cooler, 240mm Radiator, Dual Chamber RGB Pump, Dual MF120R RGB Fans w/ RGB Lighting Sync for AMD Ryzen/Intel 1151/2066

Case: FSP ATX Mid Tower PC Computer Gaming Case
sorry for different boldness or colors, i copy/pasted a few names. Please Help and help me figure out if these parts will fit the case.

That is a standard ATX form factor. Everything you have listed is standard ATX form factor. Everything will fit just fine.

The front should be able to fit the cooler as it can fit a 360mm radiator.

Good PSU choice but a tad overkill for the system. Are you buying all these parts new?

im pretty sure the graphics cars was use but barely, it said that it was basically new and used for a short amount of time but otherwise everything else is new

While I love the AX860i, I have one and its been fantastic, it is a bit of a high end PSU. The specs you are listing wouldn't need more than 550W on a bad day. You could probably go down to something like the RM550x and save money to put into a better GPU or more modern CPU.

Again don't get me wrong, the AX860i is a fantastic PSU but putting that much into your budget for PSU when you can get a good PSU for less and put that into another component is never a good thing. If you were planning a more higher end build with a bigger GPU and CPU I would recommend it for sure.

Do you have a budget you want to stick to for this build?

Check the list I made. I would go 2700 personally, more total cores. I would also go with the other components I listed above. IF you want a GPU go new and the 1050Ti is a more entry level mid range. You can get a 1660 for a bit more and it would be quite a bit better.
