OEM is just the drive and nothing else. Your board doesn't support IDE, you need SATA. And the drive recommended above is deactivated. Return your drive to new egg and buy this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... your motherboard should have come with Sata cables as well that look like this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Not the exact same color but the ends will be the same. your power supply should have a black connector that looks like the black one in this picture: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ImageGallery.aspx?CurImag...
