Hey I am kind of confused on the connectors I should have. This is my build.

asrock z77 extreme 4
i5 3570k
gigabyte radeon hd 7870
hyper 212 evo cooler
corsair vengeance 8 gb(2x4 gb)
seagate barracuda 500 gb
rosewill challenger black gaming atx mid tower
M12II 520W

Correct me if I am wrong, but I need two SATA cables, one for the optical drive, and one for the HDD. Are there different kinds of SATA cables that I should use? As for the PSU, I bought it at I haven't received it yet, but I am just wondering if that comes with all the necessary connectors that I need. Are there any other connectors that I am missing or haven't listed?

Interesting, seems like the power supply is deactivated. Anyways you use the same sata cables for the optical drive and HDD. The sata cables usually come with your motherboard.

Edit: If the Seasonic power supply above is the one, then it will work perfectly fine. It comes with enough connectors especially for the GPU.

Its actually the . that got merged onto the end of the link, this one will work

As for sata cables, that PSU is going to have several SATA power connectors with it that you can connect to the HDD and optical drive, the motherboard will ship with a few SATA data cables so you will have all the cables you need.
