For anyone that manages to come across this thread, here is the information on ordering the Alienware 5750 SATA cable and Caddy:
Address: 2080 S Grand Ave - Santa Ana, CA 92705 USA
Description: Sata cable for 5750 / (5700 series)
Part Number on the physical cable: 29-UJ0087-10 N/B
My cost was $60.00. It came with the aluminium caddy, 4 screws for the hard drive, the Sata PCB, and the data cable. (1 side labeled "MB" for the mother board).
I need to use my system tonight as-is for 2 shows, and tomorrow for my regular DJ gig... so I won't set it up until Sunday or Monday. I got it mounted and plugged in. Booted no problem even though it's not configured... Logged into Ubuntu. I can see the drive, but can't mount it yet... so as expected.
Raid 0 here I come! I'll be using 2 Western Digital Scorpio Black - 7200 RPM - 320GB Hard Drives. The benchmark for the drives were very quick which is why I chose these. Both were manufactured with the exact same information printed on the drives except the Serial Numbers. (Even manufactured in the same month.) I'll keep you all posted on the benchmark speeds for it. I already have the benchmark done with the original drive to compare it to.
I can't wait!
