Will my motherboard support SATA 3 Internal SSD ?

HP Recommended
HP 110 Desktop Series, Model No.: 110-106ix, Motherboard: IPM61-TB
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)
  • Model No.: 110-106ix,                                Motherboard: IPM61-TB, 
  • Processor: Intel Core i3-3240T,               RAM: 6 GB DDR3 1600 MHz (2GB+4GB ; both slots used)

Ques- My Desktop PC is running on Western Digital Blue 500GB (WD5000AAKX) HDD which came pre-installed. Now I am considering to upgrade with a SATA 3 Internal SSD  (probably WD Green (this one)  or Crucial BX500  or Seagate  Barracuda )  . Will my Motherboard support any of these SSDs ? 

Yes, I have one free SATA power & data slot on my motherboard.

 

P.S. - Also I am accepting suggestions for which SSD to buy, i mean which one is better? i want improvements in app/software loading time.

Hi:

 

Your PC's motherboard has an Intel H61 chipset and the SATA ports are only SATA II.

 

Intel H61 Chipset Review: (Almost) All the Features for Less • Jagat Review

 

A SSD even running at the SATA II speed will be much faster than a mechanical hard drive.

 

I have a couple of old PC's running SATA 3 SSD's on SATA II controllers and I am very happy with their performance.

 

I would go for the Crucial MX 500.  It has faster read/write speeds than the BX500, and only costs a little  more.

 

If you are planning to keep the existing WD Blue 500 GB for storage, you need to plug that one into your free SATA port and plug the SSD in the port the WD Blue 500 GB drive is in now.
