it SHOULD come with all the cables if it doesn't you just need to get a sata cable and if your PSU doesn't have sata power...then you need to get a molex to sata adapter (i think)....if the motherboard is SATA compliant it may come with the sata cables

Sata cables come with the motherboard when you buy it. You will atleast get one sata cable with the mobo..

Yeah OEM hard drives dont come with sata cables..
