Its SATA-II 300 mbps but that does not mean you can't use an SSD or that it will not perform very well. On the contrary, the difference between SATA-II and SATA-III is not that great in ordinary operation and an SSD is still a very helpful upgrade. Good luck. Post back with any more questions.

Exactly. All SATA is interoperational and will sync at the highest speed supported by all the hardware. Even though 2014 yes your motherboard is SATA 2. A SATA 3 drive will work but at 300 mbps. But its not the same as saying it will be half as fast. The top speed is only rarely achieved so in actual working operation SATA 2 is not that far below SATA 3.
