Default Need Some Help

Hi all, im building my first pc and could use a lil help please.
Im going to buy this mobo/cpu & hd(below), what cords do i need to hook it up? Im confused because its a SATA hd & the mobo says sata compatible but i read tigerdirect doesn't provide the cords needed to hook up the harddrive.

mobo/cpu: click here

hd: click here

i think these will work here but can i use these instead?

Thanks ahead of time!!

I don't suggest buying a mobo that does not support SATA if you plan to use an SATA HD.

k thanks, this is why i asked,
it says the mobo has;

The SPT800 includes built in IDE facilities that support up to two Ultra DMA 33/66/100/133 devices.


Serial ATA
The SPT800 supports the Serial ATA technology through the Serial ATA interfaces and the VIA VT8237. The SATA specification allows for thinner, more flexible cables with lower pin count, reduced voltage requirement, and up to 150 MB/s data transfer rate.

i figured that meant it supported sata hd
