they're named different things generally, you'll have to choice via your bios which storage device you'll install the operating system on but here this should be of help

There's really no need for a 650W psu unless you want to do crossfire or sli graphics cards... which his build has not specified

wow, neato. I noticed you put your computer on a platform, does it matter if mine is on the ground?

also, I'm watching that video you sent me, and at 17:20, he says that the motherboard needs the same socket number as the CPU. Just wondering, what happens if they don't have the same socket number?
