Replacing the PSU in my case

So, I have a question about what what computer conponents need what PSU cables. At the moment, I have a motherboard (obviously, lol) a bluray reader, and an HDD 2 TB. So for the motherboard, I would need an 8 pin for the CPU and a 24 pin to power the motherboar itself. And 2 sata cables for the bluray player and the HDD itself, correct? When I look into my HDD I see 2 connectors. One seems to be either a SATA or molex and another cable going into the HDD. If I'm not mistakened, thats probably the same conditions for the blu-ray player as well. Can someone shine the light on what it is? And lastly, the on and off switch. Do I need to replace those? Or do they go directly to the MOBO? Thats my last question. Sorry about all that, i'm nervous about replacing my psu, and what to do.

  1. One is SATA power that comes from PSU.The other is the SATA data that plugs into the SATA ports on the motherboard.

    Your power connections from the front panel , plug into the motherboard.

    Hey! Thanks for replying pretty quick. Since the data plugs into the mobo, I'll assume that the power button plugs into the mobo as well, correct?
