SATA Port For SSD

HP Recommended
HP OMEN 870-224
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello, I'm thinking of adding an SSD to my desktop but when I looked inside the case, I noticed there was only one last SATA port available. I currently have one HDD and a disk drive, the last SATA port is colored white is that ok?

I looked online and from what I'm getting, it depends on the motherboard. Also, do I need to get a seperate mount for my SSD,

or does my case come with it installed already. Thanks in advance.

P.S Heres the link to my exact motherboard. https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/omen-by-hp-870-200/13687063/model/15741160/document/c05355651

or does my case come with it installed already.  You will need to buy a 2.5" to 3.5" SSD adapter.

 

Thanks in advance.

Here are the SSD's recommended for your computer by Crucial Memory.  As you will see, there are M.2 SSD's recommended.  I don't see any M.2 socket on your motherboard for a SSD.  The only socket is for a LAN card.  Crucial makes very good products at a reasonable price.  If you want more help with choosing the best SSD for your system, you can contact their Tech Support.  They have always been very helpful.
