Default Cables Needed for a SATA Hard Drive?

I recently bought an OEM Serial ATA Hard Drive as well as a Serial ATA Cable. IS there any other cables that i need for the drive such as power cables ect? Sorry if this is a stupid question

You may need a special SATA power connector. Some drives have molex connectors as well, but others don't. You can get molex to SATA adaptors I think.
