    The motherboard should have 2-4 SATA cables in it. The PSU will have the appropriate power cables.

    In the unlikely event that the motherboard doesn't have SATA cables with it, you should be able to buy SATA II cables at any local computer store, or from newegg if you prefer.
  2. OEM drives do not come with cables or any other accessories - like mounting screws. That's why an oem drive is about $5 less than a boxed, retail drive.
