Feb 19, 2010, 4:21 AM
Does anybody know if the Gigabyte GA-MA785GM-US2H motherboard (retail) come with SATA cables to connect to a hard drive and dvd burner?
Or, do I need to purchase those separate?

just about every motherboard comes with as many sata cables as it has ports. so as long as your buying new I would bet yes.

You can find an image of the 'bundle' here:
It appears to include a pair of (data) cables; if you do not have SATA power connectors on your PSU, you will need adapters to go from MOLEX to SATA - buy a few extra. I have a sizeable, and ever growing pile of bad ones, and they are the devil's own task to troubleshoot - flex 'em one way, work fine, flex 'em a different way (or even worse, let 'em 'relax' into a new position for a half hour) and powee - 'disappearing drive'!!
