Default What you need with OEM Hard Drives

Hello, What do you need to buy along with OEM Hard Drives? Like cables or anything? Im sorry if this is a dumb question, but I am new to this whole thing.
Thanks

The Kid

in most cases you dont have to buy anything but the drives it all depends , the motherboard usally comes with ide/sata data cables as for the power your psu will most likely handle it if its an ide one (unless you got all power plugs taken in that case youll have to get a power cable splitter) if its an sata one then you might need to get an sata power adapter if the psu dont have sata power connectors
