Question Best place to buy SATA cables; what kind?

My mobo came with only one SATA cable and I need to buy another. I plan to buy a couple so I can take advantage of shipping.

Where should I buy SATA cables, and what kind should I get? I'm using 2x1.5gb/sec Samsung 200gb drives.

Please post your parts reccomendations. I'm looking into Newegg, they look pretty cheap, but I don't know what kind of cables are good quality.

just go to best buy or a local shop. im sure you can find them cheaper than newegg, since they have to include 5 buck shipping with EVERYTHING, EVEN items for 99 cents, i hate that

svc.com is my favorite for all kinds of little things. Case mods, lights, fans, cables, pretty much anything SVC has good brand names for not too much.
