Hello computer gurus,
I am in a processes of building a new desktop PC and I am trying to buy the Sata cables that fit into Hard drive and Cd/DVD player, I am trying to establish a (RAID) system and I am wondering if there is a SATA cable that would accommodate 3 hard drive connected to each other then connecting to the motherboard If anyone can help me with this problem I would greatly appreciated.
and as far as power goes would this power supply be sufficient? Thermaltake TR2 W0388RU 600W ATX 12V v2.2 Power Supplyor I need bigger? again I appreciate any and all help.
bellow is the component that I will be using in building the system.
Thank you very much for your help

B) You have 2 options. Most motherboards today support RAID with a certain number of hard drives; you just plug them into specific SATA ports.
The second option is a RAID card that plugs into a PCI/PCI-E port. This is usually the better of the two options.
I'm not familiar with RAID setups since I've never done one, but the guys over the in the Storage -> RAID section can probably help you better.
Thank you for your help, I am sorry about the double thread, it happened by accident, I have been trying to delete one of them but don't know how.
Would you know haw to delete it? thank you for your help.
