GIGABYTE decided to give a good approach to their hardware bundle for the GA-965 DS3 board. Four SATA cables are enough to get you started with RAID arrays or individual drives. It would have been nice to have seen six SATA cables as there are six ports on the GA-965-DS3, but four are included. A FDD and an IDE cable round out the hardware bundle.
