Need to purchase an SATA cable

Hi everyone,

I just purchased an HP Proliant ML 110 G4 server, which was configured with three Seagate 160GB SATA 7200 non-hot plug hard drives. I purchased a fourth, but it did not come with the SATA cables. I want to purchase this, but 1) do not know the best place to obtain it online or retail and, 2) I want to make sure I get the right type.

Also, it didn't ship with any screws to fasten it to the frame. Any ideas there?

Thanks.

Here's a online one with a picture,  just be sure to get one long enough.

Just wanted to point out most of the big name stores are total rip off's for cables.  As you can see online prices are around $2-4,    retail stores should not be a whole lot higher.  Be warned though I have seen them priced for $15.00 or more - for exactly the same thing - in the typical big box stores.

A small computer or electronics store might be a better place to check.  I know it's not much in the big picture,  just kinda annoys me that those stores burn innocents so bad.

Any electronics stores or retailers that you can find. It is only about few bucks. Why bother order online just 1 piece of cable.

absolutely, you can get if from Best Buy, or Futureshop or any retailer.

if you reaaaally want to buy it online then check on ebay, just read the item description

As usual, all very good answers. I appreciate Kode giving me the link to NewEgg. Of course, shipping can more than make up for the retailer's profit margin.

I just wish PC Nation had shipped it with a cable. I can't remember IDE hard drives coming without an IDE cable, but maybe I have just forgotten.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.
