No, it's on this door that comes on the case, which holds 2 2.5inch drives. In the picture you can see the sata power and data cable coming out of the door right under the front fan, sort of where the graphics card is

well if you want OSX, the easy and legal way is to get a mac. https://www.apple.com/shop/buy-mac/imac?product=MNDY2LL/A&step=config#

But if you want to build a computer with OSX installed, you can't just pick any parts, you need to get ones that have driver compatibility with OSX, which is limited. Start looking into building a 'hackintosh'. There are tons of forums about it.

Otherwise I would double check everything, something might not be plugged in correctly

check all the power cables

it normally means that something is missing essential to a computer (ram, cpu, storage)

I would get a wired one, wireless mice and keyboards can have some latency depending on which one you get. Wireless also costs a lot more.

I actually changed my mind a little bit and went with the i3, though it lacks cores, it is a much newer chip and will be easy to upgrade to a better processor like an i7 6700k in the future (if necessary). It also uses DDR4 which is a lot newer. The FX 6300 has aged a lot, and intel will be a lot more reliable. The intel i3 beats the FX 6300 in most games but not all, games that require more cores perform better on the FX 6300. Make sure that you get the RX 480 with 4GB of vram if you want to stay under $500 (excluding the ssd). An SSD is a great idea and will speed up your boot time for your operating system of choice. The maximum amount of ram that you can upgrade to is 32GB, but 16GB is more then enough for gaming.

If you are strict on $500, get the RX 480 with 4GB of vram for $40 less.

You have to buy the 64 bit version of Windows.

To get the hard drive working you have to format it.

  1. Search for Disk Management in windows
  2. Right click on hard drive
  3. Click format

If it doesn't show in Disk Management it means you either plugged it in wrong or its faulty.

So you just want the CPU? No GPU?

And do you want soft or hard tubing? Softer is a lot cheaper.

Do you want a reservoir too?

It is an amazing SSD for the price. I got it for $34.99 and it boots windows in 4 seconds and makes overall browsing a lot faster.
