I have brought the crucial MX 200 SSD, which came with no cables and just the SSD.

I own the NZXT Phantom 820 and EVGA SuperNOVA GS 650W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply. Does it come with any wires that I could use for the new SSD?

Use the SATA power cable like this from your power supply.

and get a SATA data cable like this to attach to your motherboard.

You will see the same cables attached to your current HDD and DVD drive.

 

If you want to get using your new SSD straight away you could borrow the sata cable from your DVD whilst you're waiting for your new one to come.

The case won't come with cables. Those usually come with the motherboard. If your motherboard didn't include enough SATA cables, you will have to order new ones.

In a previous thread araragi asked for advice about a build. I assume this is the same build, but you are right that a spec list would have been nice.

I think he/she read this annoucement http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/forum-7/announcement-46-please-provide-system-specifications-when-posting-a-problem/ and this http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/18367/before-you-post-about-a-problem/

FWIW:  OP has not posted to topic since 7 Jun...I think that all speculation/hypotheses, etc. should cease...at least until the OP decides this topic is worthy of a comment.
