    Okay, I'm building a new computer with a fresh new socket 939 ECS mobo. The board has pinouts for many optional accessories such as a tv-out header, com2, aux-in and things like that. I looked on the ecs website and they didn't have any of these available for sale and am wondering if anyone knows where I can buy some of these cables..

    Haha! Wrong forum! :p

    As far as complex/rare/specialist cables go, your best chance is googling or looking in one of those web retailers which stocks rare-ish items. A la kustompc's in the UK.

    Oops.. Not paying attention to where I'm posting... Moved ;)

    I've been trying to find a place to find cables, but have only been able to find com port adapters like we used to find with the old AT mobo's.

    That's the problem with a LOT of mobo manuf. They list them as optional extras, but you just cant buy them anywhere. Might be worth emailing ECS direct or something to find out.

    Yea, I was thinking of emailing ECS directly. I was able to find a com port adapter though. I dug through a box of old parts and found a com port cable from an AT mobo and a blanking plate with a hd15 in it. I took the hd15 out, put the db9 in and voila! :) Now, I did have a blanking plate thing which has dual rca jacks for 2 spdif connections. I was able to take off the mobo plug and use a plug from a 4-pin cdrom audio cabe to get it to work as a L/R aux-in. Now, as far as a regular spdif and svga, I'm lost. I did try eBay, but have NO idea what to search for!
