Where to buy modular power cable for PSU?

I misplaced my modular power cables for Antec HCP 1000 and would like to acquire some, is there a good place to get such cable? Or just try my luck on ebay?

Unless you get lucky, I think Antec or whomever manufactured the PSU is your only choice.

Don't try random cables with the same plug. Someone on RFD fried his PSU that way because he thought you can mix and match modular cables.

Antec doesn't make their PSUs, so you have to be careful if you try that.

thanks for the warning - now I see why. The wires might not be matched up the same for the modular cables connected directly to the PSU between models of the same brand or between different brands.
