My motherboard came with 4 Sata cables. You should have enough

Well it only shows 2 Sata Cables. You can take your chances and hope for more or you can buy one more sata cable.

I don't see any of the drives that provide cables.

Your video connection is good since your monitor comes with a lot of connections

Your MOBO will come with two. You'll need three total. So buy 1.

alright, will do. any suggestions on which ones I should get? I was looking at a few, but people noted that the cable didn't fit properly because the power cable was in the way.

Well in those same comments they should have said whether the 90 degree or the straight worked.

Good ole' sata III cable will do. Don't need a real long one, and I wouldn't think you'll have any issues (you'll have a straight and 90 degree with the mobo), I think either will work fine as the 3rd.
