Default SATA Cables Included?

I'm trying to pick a HD for my upcoming build but the newest review on the WD Caviar Green says it doesn't include a SATA cable. I can't find anyone else with the same complaint, so I hope you guys can tell me.
Newegg.com - Western Digital Caviar Green WD10EADS 1TB 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - Internal Hard Drives

Other option is a Samsung Spinpoint:
Newegg.com - SAMSUNG Spinpoint F1 HD103UJ 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - Internal Hard Drives

I'd just like a HD with the cables in the box.

Those are both OEM drives so they won't come with cables. If you didn't get SATA cables with your motherboard, or have a prebuilt, you will need to buy a cable separately.

both of those drives are oem so no cables. You can either spend $20 more for a retail model or spend $2 on a sata cable.

You do not have any sata cables left over from your motherboard?

Well, I'm ordering all the parts now, so I hadn't had the chance to check my mobo. Luckily, it should include one.

Newegg.com - BIOSTAR TFORCE TA790GX 128M AM2+/AM2 AMD 790GX HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard - AMD Motherboards

Thanks again for clearing up my confusion.

Seems my optic drive is OEM, too. Seeing as how I've never bought a SATA cable before, is there anything I should be looking for on Newegg?

This is my optic drive:
Newegg.com - LG Black 22X (CAV) DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 16X DVD+R DL 22X (CAV) DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 12X DVD-RAM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM 2MB Cache SATA 22X DVD±R DVD Burner - CD / DVD Burners

If anyone could link me some proper SATA cables, I'd appreciate it.

That's not to say your mobo wasn't OEM also.

If you're ordering the hard drive with your motherboard you should have the SATA cables included with your motherboard.
