Questions about cables for Bare drives, first custom computer

Hi, I noticed that my Hard drive was a bare drive. I am thinking I need one Sata II cable and a power cable for it.
I was also thinking, will my SSD card come with cables and brackets (I think it will I don't see bare drive anywhere in the description)?
Is there anything else in this group of components that I will need to get my computer running that is missing?
I'm also open to any comments, Suggestions, or critiques you have about my build.

More about questions cables bare drives custom computer
  1. There will be SATA cables included with the MB . Usually two , sometimes more.

    If there are only two then use one to connect the SSD and the other to install the DVD drive . You will be able to install windows and get running . Later you can add the other disk
  2. Sata cables are pretty much universal. Some actually state that they are rated for 1.5gbs 3gbs or 6gbs. Some have metal lock clips, or 90 degree connectors, but any cable should work.

    If you need more I would order them on line because you can get any length and color you want for like 2 bucks, vs a department store where they are 10 -20, and you only get 1 option.
  3. If you think you will need another SATA data cable just add one to your order, they are ~$5. You won't need a power cable, that's on the PSU.
    You might consider a case which has some cable management Rosewill BLACKHAWK Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case, come with Five Fans, window side panel, top HDD dock http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811147107 $99.99 free shipping. I have an Antec 300 case and there is simply nowhere to put the excess cables except push them into the lower HDD bay where the front fan is or bundle them as tight as you can with wire ties as close to the PSU as possible. And trust me, you will have a TON of unused cables on that power supply. I just got my Antec 750 W Antec HC Gamer an hour ago and the thing is a Beast!
    That Thermaltake will be similar.
    Maybe none of my business but why would you need a wall mount for that monitor. by the looks of it I saw on your link I'm not sure it would even be suitable for a computer monitor. I have the exact same monitor on a 20" by 40" desk along with the keyboard and mouse and it is fine for my use. It has a stable base.
    Mice and keyboards are a subjective thing, they have to feel right but the best mouse I have is a $30 Logitech cordless optical mouse with a USB wired transmitter which sits under my monitor and it's great for me. You might consider a wireless. Drawback, they use a battery and use USB port. Just thought I'd mention that. I hate that mouse cable.
    Cheers!
  4. Course it's your business this a forum.
    I'll order one SATA cable then thanks.
    Yeah I might go to a store and try different mice out but I'm not too picky I just want it to be good at whatever it was meant to do. Except that keyboard I picked looks awesome.

    This is what my specs look like now. (I MIGHT change to the Blackhawk but it is so daunting. I do like the Anuses though. Micheal Gambons or something.)
