What cables do my PC components come with, and what cables do I need to buy?

Your motherboard should come with at least one SATA Data cable.
Your power supply has five SATA power cables (you need one) and two PCIE power connectors (you need one).

That should be all that your system needs.

nothing. you need to buy. only thing that i could think of is the fan mounting screw (it may not fit with your case), however that doesn't stop you from building your pc, your pc would work without the additional fans. and you can always get the mounting screw after.

you should be good.

i assume you have hdmi or dp cable/power cable for your monitor.

psu should come with a power cable.

motherboard should come enough sata cable for your hard drive.

case should have the proper connection for hd led and start/restart button. maybe some usb extension and audio for the jacks/usb port on the case.

rest is all pretty much plugged directly into motherboard.

Are fan screws specific for certain fans, or are they the same for all of them?
EDIT: I've searched online, and they case and fan screws (and the fan itself) are compatible. No worries :)

issue is that there is not standard way to mount fans, some fan are held with self tabbing screws where other fans are held with machine screws screwed onto the computer case.

I've checked that the case supports 120 mm fans, but I don't know about the screws.

I don't really know if my motherboard has a 3-pin or 4-pin slot because the fan does come with a 3 - 4-pin adapter.

EDIT: Nevermind, couldn't see the 4-pin slot that was white on my motherboard.
