Since it has a SATA interface it is fine to stick a SSD drive in it.  You will need to decide on capacity before looking at price.  Are you working to a budget?

Give me a price list and then I can decide what to buy. And also if you know the cheapest place I could order from.

what the heck??

...SLC, and size.

At the moment the Intel X-25 and the OCZ Apex series are aboth the best deals out there.
I did see a Kingston 120GB (rebranded X-25) on Newegg for about $250.00
This should give you a fair idea of what's out there (the higher the read and write numbers, the better):
