    The motherboard comes with 4 SATA cables.

    And Home premium is the most suitable version of Vista to get.

    i'd just buy them if you can't use the normal SATA ones.. not worth buying them if you're not gonna use them..

    Of course it does, most ASUS boards come with 2 at least. In fact most motherboards nowadays come with 2 or more.

    It never needs mentioning really unless someone has an absurd amount of drives and DVD drives.

    Re: Advice for new build

    As I said the manual states that it comes with 4.

    and I think 2 of them are angled.

    Not that it is such an issue on the P5Q-E as it has SATA ports that face front (at least 4) anyway.
