If your PSU has Sata leads then you only need a Sata data cable

But if your PSU only has 4pin molex connectors then you can use this for power and data

Check whether your drive will work with them as they only provide two of the three power connections a normal SATA power connector has and some drives need all three. (I think it's a 3.3v line that's missing)
