need a little help plugging in all my pc wires.
Im a virgin pc builder. I installed all my components last night. the only thing thats left is all the cords. The only cords I plugged in were the sata data cables from my opt. and hdd to the mobo. I'll start with this, my opt. drive needs a sata power cable. where does the other end go? My hdd can have either a sata power cable or there is a 2 rowed 4 pins across connection. I have a sound card in the pci slot. Does this need any power or data connections? It was a $30 soundblaster card. My Radeon 4850 gpu says it need a powe cable. Any thing else for my GPU? Where do all the cords from my corsair tx650 psu go? By the way I have a biostar atx mobo. About $110. Where does the IDE cable go. there are three connectors on my one ide cable. Where do all the computer case wires go? I have a coolmaster centurion. Sorry, I know this is a lot of questions, but the instruction manuals are really vague. Any help or good links would be much appreciated. Oh yeah, why does my case come with a little metal froot loop looking thing? If this is a little too much to ask for, could I get a few helpful concepts or something? Thanks.
