How can i hook up my 2.5" SSD into my new desktop? I have no cables.
First of all, I do not know much about computers. I have a 2.5 inch ssd and I have a desktop that I want to put it into. I was told that a 2.5" to usb would not work because the cable would be too slow. I have a gigabyte 990fxa-ud3 motherboard. Is there anywhere internally that I could plug it into, and if so, where can I find an adapter for it? Any help is much appreciated.

You plug a sata cable into it for the data and power. And plug it into a sata port.
If you dont have one buy one
You need a SATA data cable. About $1-2. SATA power comes from the PSU.
Mounting it? Depends on your case. Most cases in the last couple of years have dedicated 2.5" mount points.
