Please help: Do I need to buy SATA cables with my harddrive I ordered? Tags: Hard Drives Cable Samsung Storage SATA Build Western Digital Last response: May 1, 2013 8:09 PM in Storage Share TaskinRahman May 1, 2013 7:08:03 PM Hello, I decided to get two harddrives for my first build. I got the: Western Digital WD1002FAEX Black 1TB 7200RPM 6.0Gb/s SATA3 Hard Drive Link: http://www.outletpc.com/co2169.html Samsung 840 SSD Link: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009NHAEXE/ref=oh_deta... It does not say that they come with SATA cables. Do I need to buy it separately like you do for HDMI cables? If so, what kind of SATA cable should I get? Does it matter? Do I get a SATA cable for my HDD as well? Thanks. Wait, I also ordered the ASUS P8z77 deluxe mobo. That should come with SATA cables correct?

Someone Somewhere a b G Storage May 1, 2013 7:37:17 PM Mobo should come with a couple. As it's a high end one I'd be expecting between four and six, so you're fine. Go look at a review if you're worried (which you should probably do anyway).
