Need some very basic help!


#1

I just purchased and received :  http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136161
…from new egg. I was not aware at purchase that it was a bare drive. I need to purchase the two cables/wires for it but I am unsure of what I am looking for… The Sata cable and I guess the IDE cable? I am not to sure… Any links to newegg product or the name of what I need to buy would be AWESOME!

Thank you for taking the time to read this!

IS this what I would want ? : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812189193

Personally, I don’t like cable combos, I like one cable for each function.

Data Cable:

Power Cable:

Or

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812123167&cm_re=sata_power_cable-_-12-123-167-_-Product

A bit more expensive, but if one cable goes bad, I don’t have to replace it all.

Hope it helps.
