    You should be able to use any old SATA equipment. What kind of power cable are you looking for? molex to SATA? If its anything else, Newegg is great, but I don't know of any other type of power cable that you can buy separately, the rest are normally attached to the Power Supply.

    I'm guessing you mean Data rather than power? as the power has nothing to do with the motherboard or 3GB/s / 6GB/s.

    You should give it more time before bumping your thread, you only waited 7 minutes.

    Is this a new build, or pre-existing? Or did you not build it, and you bought it pre-built from HP, Gateway, etc? If you are not looking for the adapters I sent you, you will need a new power supply, may I recomend using this Power Supply Finder? I haven't used this yet, but just from the quick glance, looks like it will help you quite a bit.
