Where are the SATA 300 Cables?

  1. Alright, I’ve got myself a GIGABYTE GA-8I945GZME-RH and two Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 ST3320620AS. Both items are supposed to support a SATA 3.0Gb/s connection. My MB came with a cable I can only assume is SATA/300. So where are all the 300 supported cables on NewEgg? I can’t seem to find any. Is this something I can pick up at my local Frys?

    There's no such thing as a SATA 2 (or '300') cable - it is all a marketing gimmick.

    SATA 300 drives have the same industry-standard interface as SATA 150 and are designed to use the same, industry-standard SATA 150 cables.

    Thanks, Rick! So it seems the 150 cables I have are working just fine. Thanks for the help.
