Motherboards come with cables, not drives (besides boxed HDDs). If your optical drive is SATA you can just use the cables for that to do the clone.

Don't you have to plug both hard drives into the motherboard to do the clone?

Yes, that's why I was saying if you have a SATA optical drive you can just use the cables for that.

I'm not 100% sure it is but say if it is wouldn't I need 2 loads of cables ? One set to plug the original drive in and another set for the ssd.

Sorry if I'm barking up the wrong tree lol

You should only need a SATA cable which are cheap. Could you take a pic of the inside of the PC?

Yup, SSDs are amazeballs. Sadly though, like the HDD even an SSD is the bottlenecking factor in a computer
