and depending on if your computer has a rs-232 port or USB only you may need a RS-232 to USB cable which you can get here for $15 (it is close to $60 through Celestron)

ps- that is the physical cables but you will also need the ASCOM software platform (free).
And this is also assuming 32 bit Windows OS.

yes it is a cg5-gt mount. that's good news because i thought that i mite need a Shoestring Astronomy GPUSB cable to. already have ascom software and yes running 32 bit windows . thanks mark
You will need that Shoestring adapter if you are planning to guide through the autoguide port. If you are going to guide through the serial port on the HC, though, yeah, all you need is the cable and PHD Guiding (free).
