Which wires do I need + another question.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Well, I got the OEM version of my DVD drive and my hard drive.
It came with no Cables whatsoever.

Right now, my power supply has SATA power connectors. There is one for the hard drive and one for the DVD drive. First question: Should one strip of SATA from the power supply go to both the hard drive and the DVD drive and put them in one SATA slot on the motherboard? Or should they have their own separate power strips?

Either way, I'm missing the SATA connector cables for both the hard drive and the DVD drive. 2nd Question: Can anyone find me a good cable for it? I need two of them. (I prefer Buy.com at the moment, please!)

Thanks reply soon!

Yea those cables I linked you to will work just fine. Just buy whatever length you need. Measure the distance between your drives to your sata ports then go up to the next size just to be safe. IE if it's 30" distance, get the 36" cables.
