After building my first computer a few years back I didn't have any shortage on cables. However, I am in the process of picking out parts for my next build and I never really thought about it....do I need to buy additional sata cables? below are the links to the drive and mobo.

If any, which do I need? Power, or serial Sata? (assuming that's even correct).

Thank you!

Power SATA are attached to the PSU. Or, in the case of a modular...come in the box to be attached to the PSU as needed.

Data SATA - the motherboard comes with 4. That 'bare drive' probably doesn't.

You should be fine, unless you are connecting more than 4 drives.

looks like they give you 4 SATA cables with the motherboard & your power supply will have the power cables for the drives.
