Thank you for the link. However, I'm operating at a pretty basic level here; I just want to know if a SSD will work with my motherboard since its so old. In other words, is there a particular connector or type of SSD that will work. After I know where to start I'll look into refining my search.
Just in case it matters, here is the entire system I'm looking to upgrade.
