Do I need to purchase extra cables?
Hi to all,
I just ordered a DELL XPS 8500-3158 computer that is scheduled to be delivered on Tuesday. When it arrives I want to install both a second DVD drive (LG GH24 DVD rewritter ) and a second hard drive (Seagate 1TB Serial ATA HD) plus my Hauppauge WinTV DCR 2650 Cable Card before I even turn it on.
I downloaded the XPS 8500 Owners Manual from DELLís site but didnít find much information about Data cables and Power cables when installing additional items, and there was only skimpy instructions in the box with the unit.
With both the DVD Drive and the Seagate Hard Drive I did not receive any additional cables with the units. I realize that I need both a Power cable and a Data cable for each of the new drives in order for them to work.
My question is: Is there normally extra Power and Data cables already inside the computer case or am I expected to purchase them on my own?
I am a complete novice at this so is there any gotchaís or things I should look out for or should I just take the new computer to a Computer repair facility and have them install the units?
Respectfully, Graphics Guy
