Whats needed to install OEM HD

I'm going to order this oem hd off newegg(http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...148-025&depa=1) and need to know which cables i need to buy(i don't think it comes with any, because its the oem version, not the retail).

All you should need is an IDE cable. (http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...=BROWSE&depa=1)
You may already have one as I always seem to have plenty of these sitting around when I need one, but you could buy one to be safe.

You'll need your own screws too. Maybe your case came with some, otherwise I'd look for some to buy.

BTW, Amazon has a Maxtor 160GB HD 7200RPM with 8MB cache for $99.99 after $30 rebate. Free shipping.
