If its only graphics i dont mind that much as long as it doesnt affect the fps and by the looks of it one comes with the r7 Yay https://www.amazon.co.uk/MSI-R7-370-Gaming-Graphics/dp/B00ZPOCUAO/ref=cm_cd_al_qh_dp_i

As in: I have a laptop with Intel HD graphics in it. GTA V with my Quadro card? 40 ish FPS @1920*1080p. GTA V running on Intel HD? 10 FPS at 800*600 resolution. It isn't just aesthetics, it's how your graphics and frames are processed. No good processor = no good framerate and no good aesthetic. Different versions of it might not. If it says it comes with a VGA adapter, then it'll come with a VGA adapter. And that means it'll have a VGA port, so you're in luck

So basically if I plug it into the motherboard it will run of the integrated GPU in the CPU but if I plug it into graphics card it will run of the motherboard the r7 370 and all that??? Or doi need to somehow connect it to both from what I assume I built it plug my keyboard and mouse into the motherboard plug my monitor into the GPU and go???? It will already support keyboards right? Because if I can't type I can't get drivers so I'll assume

That is exactly correct :D

GPU will not have USB ports so yes: Monitor->GPU, Keyboard->Mobo, Mouse->Mobo, Anything USB->Mobo. Microsoft will install default drivers for your mice and keyboards and USB connected stuff on startup, and you can use them, just not necessarily with all the functionality depending on what peripherals you have. You can then go download the specific drivers afterwards (like, I don't really want to run my nice Razer Black Widow and Naga Hex off of a microsoft driver, I'd rather have Razer's).

Asus H110M-A Micro ATX LGA1151 Motherboard has an onboard USB 3.0 header, but the Rosewill FBM-01 MicroATX Mini Tower Case does not have front panel USB 3.0 ports. Its an error brought up by pc part picker... The motherboard has the same layout as the h81m though??? And thats the case used in the video.... build video, Also it says the r7 370 might not fit but its unknown If i build it in a different case will it have all the stuff like the same wires?

The 3.0 headers just dictate that if you have a case that supports 3.0/3.1, you can hook it up to the motherboard. Because the case does not have it, it's not a problem, you just don't get the benefit of USB 3.0. The case in PPP states that the MSI 970 Gaming 4Gb is compatible with the case. ALL of the MSI 970's dimensions are larger than the MSI R7 370 dimensions, so you'll be okay.

So the case just has additional usb sockets and i can only use the ones directly on my motherboard if i want the speed of 3.0 its just a have a secondary external hard drive and for the things i will store on there a 3.0 socket would be useful but i probably wont run out of my tb sshd space

It would certainly be useful, and you wouldn't want to run any heavy duty programs off of a USB 2.0 socket, but it's certainly fine for file storage. because there isn't 3.0 on the case, it means the usb 3.0 connector will go to waste on your motherboard, but again, nbd. The sockets on the motherboard are not all 3.0. I don't know based off of the Amazon page if any of the sockets on the motherboard are 3.0. If they are, then yes you can use those as 3.0 sockets. If not, they'll all be 2.0 sockets.

Ok so now ive just heard about the new graphics cards... Nvidia pascal... They are going to be the best ones and i doubt any will be as affordable as the radeon r7 370 but will they fit in that case still?

I have no idea because I don't know the dimensions. There's no way of telling that without the specific make of the cards being available, the only things that are out for Pascal right now are speculations on what the later-releases are going to bring, and what the releases in a few months or so are going to be. Spec wise, not dimension wise.
