SATA cables: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... x2 I'd mostly like to know - whether I'd need the 750W if decided to put another 670 in there for SLI in the future - if SLI 670's would even fit in that case. With the drive bays out it should work right? -Do i need to order these Sata cables for the OEM hard drive and disc drive? Otherwise just let me know if u spot any red flags or if theirs a better alternate part suggestion.

Check out the XIGMATEK Gaia SD1283 for $20. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... And this is the review. http://www.frostytech.com/articleview.cfm?articleid=259... 2) You don't need buy extract SATA cables, it comes with the MB. 3) Yes, take out the bay then the card will fix. 4) Do you consider the SSD. like this http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/searchtools/ite... 5) otherwise all are very good.

That is all. m 0 l geekapproved September 20, 2012 1:50:05 PM Your mobo clearly states TWO sata cables and you have ONE hard drive so you don't need to buy sata cable/s(?) m 0 l Onus September 20, 2012 2:20:28 PM Nice find on the Xigmatek Gaia review; I did not realize it actually outperforms the CM Hyper212+, and there's a 6db noise difference too.
