Lol, that video is so vague. But frankly, I have no idea what to even ask. I read a guide or watch a tutorial but every single component looks different from the next (to me). Guess I'll just keep searching around.

Use your edit buttons guys.

The first thing is that plug you asked about is a floppy power plug.
Second,
the 4 pin plugs are auxillery plugs for fans, HDs, ODs, etc. You may not use them all.

The best reference site for building is easily. The animated guide to Building a PC. Learn to build a PC from scratch with PCitYourself!
