I am doing research for a $2,000 gaming PC that I plan to build next year. While looking at the interface requirements for the CD/DVD burner and Blu-Ray drive, both made by ASUS, the specs listed SATA. I am currently looking at the ASUS P8Z77-V motherboard, but I could no SATA ports on either the specs or images. Does it have the ports needed to connect the optical drives or do I have to buy an adapter? Also, I am looking at a Crucial 256 SSD, which uses SATA III. How would I connect that to the motherboard?

Here is a list of all P8Z77-V boards made by ASUS, click any one and scroll down to the section "internal I/O ports". You will notice all the sata ports available on the board you plan to purchase

Both the CD/DVD and bluray will connect to a port, and the SSD will connect to a port
