You’ll 2 SATA cables since HDDs usually don’t come with it, 15-20cm long will do so they don’t take that much space of your case.

Power cord is always included with the Power Supplies (You can check the pictures of the one you chose and you can see whats included, you’ll spot the cable there)

PCI-E is not a cable, so don’t need to worry about it. Its part of the Graphic Card which sticks inside the slot of the MoBo. The power supply cable of the Graphic Card is included.

DVD-ROM also includes the SATA cables, so no need to buy any.

Right now, the cheapest you’ll get the W8 is the W8 Pro upgrade which is right at $ 70. Newegg or Amazon; maybe you could check on eBay for one to get for a cheaper price but, I guess it would be like $ 10 less.

    All you really need is…..
    A Phillips (+ head) screwdriver
    Common sense.

    An OEM cd drive is just that, the drive itself. No additional cables and no cd burning software, just the drive on its own.

    The power cable for the drive will be on the PSU ….. Sata Power.

    You should get at least 2 sata data cables with your motherboard, providing it is NEW sealed (in most cases). The data cable for the drive, connects to the sata port on the mobo.

    Same goes for the hdd.
