You can install a SATA III SSD in your 8200 Elite SFF, and it will work at the full SATA III speed.
I put a Sandisk SSD Plus 240 GB in my 8200 Elite CMT.
You can select a storage capacity size that works with your budget.
Mine cost around $70 USD on sale.

You're very welcome.
Yes, you get the full sata 6.0 GBPS transfer speed in sata port 0 (boot drive), and port 1.
Ports 2 and 3 are SATA II. Either of those is normally where you plug the DVD drive into.
You will need a 3.5" to 2.5" hard drive caddy for the drive to fit where your current HDD is now.
