Will I need a longer SATA cable for new graphics card in XPS 8500?

I just bough on Amazon an EVGA GeForce GTX 660 graphics card to upgrade my XPS 8500 system. The dimensions, according to Amazon are: 9.5 x 1.5 x 4.4 inches. Will the existing SATA cable be long enough or do I need to buy a longer on. If I need a new, longer cable, how long should it be and do you have a link to one? Thanks.

There are no SATA cables connected to a video card. The only connection you might need would be a power connection which if your current card has will be just fine for the new card.
