So I recently purchased the following items.

HDD
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


Motherboard
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

PSU
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Case
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

What I need to know is what do I need to get the HDD connected because it is a bare drive it will not come with any cables.

Nothing. The motherboard will come with the needed SATA cables needed to connect the HDD to the motherboard.

Just to be curious , why did you buy such an expensive motherboard?
I'm not completely sure what cables come with the motherboard but since you are getting a sata3 hdd you want to make sure that you are useing the sata3 cables that come with the motherboard.

I wanted a motherboard that could handle 3xfire with overclocking it seemed like the most stable choice also it is cheaper than the new 2011 platform that I was going to get so I saved money in the end while still getting a beast board.
