Came with 4 SATA connectors, which I am pretty sure will by ok for my optical drive, but does anyone know if these cables support the full 3.0 transfer rates of the Caviar, or do I need to buy better cables?

Any standard SATA cable will be fine. Anyone trying to sell "cable upgrades" is simply trying to make an easy buck off gullible consumers.
Yep. SATA cables are SATA cables. 1.5, 3.0 and 6.0 GB/s transfer speeds are independent of the SATA cable.
At least the SATA cable hysteria isn't as bad as the HDMI cable hysteria.
