I just ordered all the parts for my new rig. I have one question about the SATA cables for my drives.

Here's the MOBO I ordered, I see in one of the pictures that it comes with two sata cables and one power cable

hard drive that I ordered, which is OEM:

cd drive, which is also OEM:

Could you guys take a look and see if I need to order any other cables? I don't want to be stuck not being able to put my new computer together because I'm missing a single cable. Thanks

looks good, you've got two sata cables and two sata devices. the power cable provided is probably an adapter from regular 4-pin moles to sata power, your power supply will have additional power cables.

The mobo pic shows two pairs of SATA cables. Looks like you're good to go.
