Hi:

 

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.
