Specs: All Windows based platforms
If I buy all the individual parts for a computer, such as the motherboard, PSU, cooler, ect, will they come with the cords and wires that are necessary?

The power supply comes with power cords for components.
The case includes cords to connect it to the motherboard.
Fans include cords, occasionally extensions are needed for these.
Hard drives/SSD drives do NOT typically come with SATA cords so probably needed.
PCI, PCIe, M.2, RAM, etc. are plug in and do not need cords. Some graphics cards need additional power through a connector but any decent power supply includes these connectors.
etc.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

The cords may come with the case, wires are with their respective components.

If you are not good at researching technical stuff, you are better off buying a barebones system.

Look at the description of the hardware you plan on purchasing - the box contents should be listed. Or go to the manufacturer's website to see what's included. Or check the listing or photos at vendors' websites that sell the hardware you're interested in buying.
For example: https://rog.asus.com/wp-content/upl...

But to answer your question more directly - Yes, cables, cords, wiring, screws, etc are USUALLY included with the hardware. But it's up to the buyer to make sure.
