The serial port connector on this mobo is just a simple dil header - you
should be able to purchase something suitable from any electronic
component shop. I'm not sure where you are but, in the UK, a Maplin
shop would be able to supply.
But there are two types of these internal serial cables, wired straight thru for Asus motherboard headers, and cross wired for Intel motherboard headers. Those available at Fry's Electronics are Intel, and do not work on the Asus motherboard. Both types are frequently available, but you must pay attention to what it is, and what you need.
See http://www.scantips.com/serial-DB9.html for pictures of the two types.
From a previous post I made:
There are two "standards" for COM headers. Asus tends to stick with
one of the standards (AT-EVEREX-INTEL). You likely won't find
confirmation of this, except by users trying it. I haven't seen it
published in an Asus manual (unless it was a really old manual).
The connectors are cheap enough, you can buy one of each
and test both of them if you like. RS-232 is pretty bullet
proof to mis-connections.
