Default 2 questions

I already have a 200GB hard drive, but that's all I have... am i supposed to have soem cables that go along with it? Or will there be cables in my PC that i can hook up to it?

Also, does anyone have a guide to hooking up custom built PCs? this is my first time and was curious to see if there was a step by step tutorial. Thanks

Ok, my brother will be ordering me a a 512MB Sapphire GFX card, 3850. The reviews say that it runs really hot - what can I do to lower the temperature?

You can swap out some case fans with ones that have higher CFM, and/or raise the fan speed manually through ATI tools to something like 70%-100% (you'll notice a greater temp drop through ATI tools tho.)

Just wanted to clarify, but do I need this: Full Size Image | TheTechLounge ??

I don't have it (it's lost somewhere) for my Maxtor 200GB. Let's say I find another one of the parallel cables from another HD, can I just use that cable?

Will I be able to put it in my new PC?
