I don't think there are dumb questions, just stupid answers, and I've made a few of them.
I have a few REALLY dumb questions.
The case has 2 USB 2.0 ports on the front, you connect them to a USB header on the motherboard, also on the front of the case are 2 audio jacks for headphone and mic. you can add more USB ports to the front of the case by a panel and connecting to a header on the motherboard.
all other ports and sockets are on the Motherboard and you have, a PS/2 socket for mouse/keyboard, 4 USB.2.0 sockets and 2 USB 3.0 sockets. Sockets for a sound system/speakers. All the connects you need are supplied and you do not have to buy anything else.
The Motherboard has a RJ-45 LAN (local area network)socket. 'LAN' is the same as 'Ethernet' for your purposes. There will be no need for you to by an addition card.
The card reader will fit in one of the top front bays on your new case and no need for new wires as you will reuse the ones already attached to the reader.
Oh, and the card reader on my comp, you said I could reuse that on the new comp right? Do all cases come with like whatever slots needed to fit that in? Will the suggested case be able to fit the card reader in? And will I need to like buy extra wires or anything for any parts or do they already come with all the wires needed for connecting and stuff?

Ok, I was looking at the images for that motherboard (should have done that sooner, it basically answered my questions LOL) and it only has one PS/2 connector on it, looks like for mouse if purple is like standard color for connecting a mouse. Both my mouse and keyboard use a PS/2 connector each and I don't want to buy a wireless keyboard >.<. I don't like using wireless keyboards/mouse because of battery replacement. I'd rather stay with wired ones. I would assume there's an adapter or something I can buy for this then?

You can buy cheap adaptors, but they just alter the pin arrangement, A converter will change the signal, is more reliable, should allow access to the BIOS at Boot. This one. > http://www.newegg.co...N82E16812224031
This will work on a Standard keyboard, Multi media keys are not supported. With any of the solutions available, thee is no guarantee they will work 100% of the time. You could buy a wired USB keyboard.
