Yes, you need a SATA data cable and power adapter, and if you're planning on installing Windows XP on it you'll also need the drivers.

Don't forget to check the motherboard to see if it has sata ports.

And then you'll need the sata data cable and the power supply will need to have the sata power plug.

On the sata drive, the left side (bigger adapter) is for power and the right side (smaller adapter) is for data.
