I've been thinking of getting a Dell SAS card to use in a server and I understand that normal SATA drivers are usable. Seeing that these Dell cards don't have mini-SAS, what sort of cable do I need to connect normal SATA drives to it?

The correct cable is " SAS Controller 32-Pin to 4 x SATA Hard Disk HDD Converter Cable ".
