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

AMD 4850 - e4300 / Tuniq
Gigabyte DS3 - Gskill NQ 2gb
WD 200gb - Hitachi 60gb
Ultra ATX wizard case - Xcilio 500 watt

Toshiba Satellite A305
Sony Vaio VGN-BX560B
