Well, I'll be getting 2 opticals, but im pretty sure they come with their own cables. So I'm guessing that one cable would be just fine(or one at 18 inches) for my pc. I'll look for an 18 inch one. Thanks

Newbie since 2005.

Assuming your MB has atleast two IDE ports.. get a dual device (rounded, maybe 24" just to be safe) for your opticals and a single device for your HD. You'll probably be ok with a 12" single for your HD depending on the distance it is from the IDE port. Don't bother with those flat pieces of crap cables... not worth it.
