Hi guys,

So I had an old computer, but I had to leave it behind. Before leaving I managed to take out the motherboard, cpu + fan, graphics card + SSD + RAM.

Now I bought a new case + a power supply.

My problem is I didn´t take out any of the cables (I was in a hurry and I don´t know anything). So I wanted to ask if anyone could point out what cables I need to buy to make it all connected again?

Intel i7-3770 3,4 GHz
8 gb Ram
Nvidia GeForce GTX 770
Asus P8H67 ATX LGA1155 Motherboard
Zalman S4 Kabinet (Newly bought - with cables)
Corsair CV450 Power supply - 450 Watt - 120 mm (Newly bought - with cables.

Attached is the old hardware I managed to bring along.

Thanks in advance!

Your case & power supply will have every cable your missing at this point. You have a data sata cable with the HDD already in the picture. Everything else comes either with the PSU or the case at this point.

I guess monitor cables but you don't have that mentioned.

Thanks a lot! Well then I will just wait for my items to be shipped :D. Monitor is still something I am looking into!

Take this opportunity to clean and reapply the thermal paste between the heat sink and CPU. If you don't want to deal with thermal paste, get a Thermal Grizzly Carbonaut Thermal Pad. Just make sure you have the right size pad.

Just a bit of added information, the only cables the motherboard will typically come with are SATA data cables (for hooking up things like your SSD/HDD) and (if these things still exist) a SLI bridge for dual graphics cards. Bonus: a small speaker (sometimes) for the POST beep when you boot your computer.
