    I am getting a sata hdd. The power supply I am getting has a sata hdd power cable. I dont know what the other wire needed to plug into mobo/whatnot from the hdd is called. It isnt an ide cable, so I was hoping you guys can tell me what it is called and give me a link to a site that sells them. I prefer Newegg if you can.

    Thanx.

    And because I'm not lazy, here's a link.
    However, a word of advice: if you don't know what an SATA cable is, that generally should be a clue that you might not be most qualified to put something like a hard drive into your case. Just a thought.

    most mobos sold with sata controllers on board generally come with a sata data cable or 2
