How to connect cold cathodes?

Hey guys,
I wanted to make a new build and I added a cold cathode to my cart for some eye candy.I was just wondering if I had to buy any other things to help connect the cathode to something.I'm a newbie so I don't know anything about connectivity in a desktop...
Thanks in Advance.

    you probably bought a logisys brand cold cathode rite?

    dont worry, its probably a good chance that your PSU has a free Molex connection for the lights, but to be safe look in your system for this kind of connection
