Your PC will only take a standard SATA SSD -- and that needs to be connected to a SATA port on the motherboard.

 

The problem is that your motherboard only has two ports and if you have an optical drive (CD/DVD drive) that will take one port and the HDD will take the other port.

 

Their are no slots in the PC for taking controller cards, so if both ports are used, you can not add an SSD.
