not too sure which to get at the moment, leaning towards the WD, but the question is, do these come with sata cables?

OEM Drives don't come with SATA cables. You will need to utilize the cables that came with your motherboard.

I would actually go with this drive myself: http://www.ebuyer.com/product/173804

I would go with the Western Digital drive.

Seagate doesn't have a track record on their hard drives that I trust. They had too many firmware issues in recent past and left a "bad test in my mouth" to say. Western Digital has a outstanding track record... IMO
