    You have one harddrive and one dvd drive. Both take one SATA cable. Your motherboard almost definitely comes with two, and the two drives usually do too. SATA is fairly standard, so you don't need a specific type.
  2. 2 SATA cables; however, don't need to add any since the motherboard comes with two.
  3. You will need 2 sata cables, one for the hard drive, and one for the dvd drive.
    Your motherboard will include two so you need not buy any extra.
  4. you will need 2 and they will comes with the motherboard.

  6. I have a pile of like 30 SATA cables. They just stick a couple in every component's box that uses one. Every harddrive I've purchased comes with one, every motherboard with at least two (some come with 4).
