I have a couple questions. I ordered all my parts on thanksgiving and was wondering if i made some mistakes
I ordered a bare drive without noticing and was wondering if it will work, and will i have cables with my mobo??
I also got a Intel h61 chipset mobo made by msi and i noticed the HDD i ordered is sata 6gb/s..... my mobo seems to have sata 3 gb/s.
Am i stressing out for no reason??

It would seem to me that your stress is unwarranted here. The SATA cables will (should) come with your motherboard. The HDD will simply run at SATA II speed no problem.
