Is there a way to make them a different color w/o having to buy new cables?

Ive seen people wrap their cables in this special thing

That looks like UV tape or wrap.

Newegg.com - Thermaltake UV Blue Round 18" IDE(ATA66/100/133) Cable Model A2068 - Retail

Would something like that work for all my cables?

That an IDE cable, which you don't need, because your hard drive and optical drive, require an SATA cable.

Would this work?


Newegg.com - VANTEC Cable Sleeving Kit, BLUE Model CSK-80-BL - Retail

EDIT: Should i just buy SATA cables? How many will i need?
Is that the only type of cable i need?

Probably so. You would just need to buy two blue SATA cables. One for your hard drive, and one for your optical drive.
