Default SATA/RAID question #2

Well I have ordered 2 of these:
Western Digital 80GB serial ATA
http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...135-106&depa=1

To be put on a RAID 0 configuration. My motherboard didn't come with all the SATA connectors so I'm wondering which cables I need to properly hook up the hard drives.

would 2 of these:
http://www.newegg.com/app/viewproduc...104-150&DEPA=0

and 2 of these:
http://www.newegg.com/app/viewproduc...104-555&DEPA=0

work? or are there things I am missing?

thanks

Yes, you will need the appropriate SATA cables if your motherboard didn't include any of them, but most SATA drives come with the option of either the SATA power connection, or the standard molex connection, so the power adapter may not be needed.

But besides the power adapter don't I need one of those "2-Head Red SATA (SERIAL ATA 150) Cable" ?
So there are two cables that are going to connect to each hard drive?
