Default IDE cable or SAT data cable?

My mobo came with an IDE cable. My optical drive and hardrive are connected with the sata cable. Do I need the IDE cable for anything else? Thanks

not unless you have a ide drive. use a sata cable for a sata drive and a ide cable for a ide drive.

The only thing ATi can render faster than nVidia is the BSOD
