The question is that the Hard drive doesn't come with any hardware and the DVD burner may or may not have a SATA cable.

Other than the 1, possibly 2 SATA cable/s, is there anything else I need extra that I need? I know the case has lock-in system rather than using screws, so that's taken care of. I just wanted to make sure, it's the first time that I'm building my own computer. My brother is going to help out too, he's into putting things together. And help out with those darn tiny cables that are impossible with my shaky hands. XD

Also, just to answer two questions at once... :thumbsup: I'm planning on setting a network between two computers and a D-Link EBR-2310 10/100Mbps Ethernet Broadband Router. I believe that the connection between the modem and the computer is fine to use to the router, but it also comes with a extra cable. I was wondering how long it is, I couldn't seem to find the length.

The DVD RAM is OEM so you are going to need cables for that too. Other than that you are looking great.

So it's just the SATA II data cables, that's good. Onto the buying part...
