your motherboard should come with a few sata cables (depending on how many sata ports you have),as for power cables most psu's now have sata power connector (especailly modular ones),but the hard drive should also have a 4 pin molex connector on it aswell,but dont connect both just one or the other,hope this helps

(sorry if the info is wrong but the link wouldnt display the product )

that link didn't work for me... but I'm going to assume that you just got an OEM drive that comes w/ only the drive and nothing else. (best way to buy drives btw)

but here, you'll need a SATA data cable and if your psu does not have any SATA power plugs you'll need a power adapter as well.

you can find both on this site. I know they ship to the UK so that's why I gave you a link. you can probably find a UK store w/ cheaper shipping though.

I do agree with ztec though, your mobo should have come w/ some SATA cables. My Asus A8N SLI deluxe came w/ 4 (maybe more) red SATA data cables and my DFI expert board came w/ 4 cables as well.


you can also find some pretty good deals on ebay. I just ordered a couple thermaltake clear uv SATA cables to match my clear us floppy and ultra ata cables

Yup, Just done a lil dearch, and my Mobo comes with 4 SATA cables. And my PSU supports SATA power supplies.

So Thanks all!
