Default custom cables

I'm getting ready to order about $1500 worth of computer components from NewEgg to have my new system built. I'll be ordering all the standard stuff--CPU, mobo, hard drive, case, video card, etc. However I wasn't going to order any special connector cables. Should I order any? I really don't know much about them, but I do know that cables are important in stereo/TV equipment. You don't want to spend a bundle of money on a system and get cheap cables. I'm assuming the same for computers. The computer store that's going to build my system said that they would supply any necessary cables, but I want to make sure I have good ones. Your thoughts?

Getting rounded ide cables (if you need them) would increase airflow but other than that i can't think of any reason that you would NEED them.

Homer_J, you'll be fine. If you want to get cable sleeves then you can. But you wont need anything special.

Heres a great site for any kind of Modd's. And here is their sleeve's.

could u please give ur hardware list or ur links at newegg? u might want to get some rounded ide cables if the parts are hot enough. if ur using SATA, make sure ur PSU has SATA connectors. if ure really worried about cables, look at http://www.xoxide.com/x-connect-500-uvblue.html ( http://www.xoxide.com/powersupplies1.html )

So far this one comes with the highest recomendation. It also comes with the highest price.

Lowest price, seems ok, 20 pin connector instead of 24 pin, not entirely clear on what the difference is. I have an athlon 64 so I think a 20 pin is ok but I could be wrong.

The mid (price) range, it's from Antec which is good.

So who's got suggestions? Is the Enermax over priced or worth the few extra bucks? Is the Sparkle a good deal or a cheap piece of hardware? And what's the deal with the Antec?
