Sli Bridge

Where do all of the wires come from for a computer?

I'm building a PC for the first time and was just wondering - where do you get all of the wires?

I know my mobo comes with some SATA cables and an SLI bridge, but where do all of the other cables come from?

Where does the 24 pin mobo connector come from? What about the CPU power cable? What about the GPU cable?

Do hard drives and disk drives need power cables as well as sata ones? If so, what are they called and do I have to buy them separately?

Thanks!
I'm a beginner so sorry to bother you.
Dan.

Those power cables come from your Power Supply Unit (PSU), see the NewEgg link below.

Every PSU comes with a 20+4 pin motherboard power connector. If you have a GPU powerful enough to require PCI-E power, then you'll need to make sure you get a PSU with PCI-E connectors. The PSU also contains the 4 (or 8) pins required for the CPU.

Yes, your hard disk as well as optical drives require power cables, which are also delivered with the PSU. You, also, do require some spare SATA cables for the data transfer.

As the other user stated, it's a good idea to watch Youtube people build systems so you can get a feel of how it's done, make sure you ask questions like this because it's a big project and a big investment, you want to make sure it's done correctly.
