Default Sata power cables!

So I was doing well in this pc build until I got to the sata hardrive. I've never used a sata drive before and always used IDE.

Now I have a data cable that connects to the motherboard but nothing for the power?? I take it I need a 4 pin molex to a sata power converter?? Is this correct?

Why don't they supply the necessary cables with the hard drive when you buy them?

Not only that, but there doesn't seem to be many places that sell them and the only place thats local and open at this time is PC World.... What are the chances of getting a cable from there?

sata power cables normally now come with new PSUs, if not u should get some with ur motherboard, if not there is a converter, its the second one from the top.

You get them with all SATA motherboards. You will find alot of PSU's just come with them now.
