I just got my new EVGA 680i mobo and it came with 6 "SATA II" CABLES and an IDE-ATA 133 HDD CABLE. I'm a first time builder and I'm really confused about if the cables are right or not.
First off I'll start with the Hard Drive.
Western Digital "SATA 3.0Gb/s" 7200 RPM.
I dont plan to use multiple hard drives, only 1. from my understanding, I would use the SATA II cables that came with my mobo to plug into that HD and it would work perfectly, correct?
and then theres my DVD/R drive.
Lite-On DVD Burner "ATAPI/E-IDE"
Since my mobo only comes with SATA cables and 1 IDE-ATA 133 HDD cable, what would I use to connect to the burner? That is what im worried about before ordering my parts.
Thanks in Advance.
