You can by any SSD HDD and it should be compatible with SATA1. For example: OCZ (AGT3-25SAT3-120G) Agility 3 2.5" 120GB SATA3 6GB/s Solid State Drive, Read: 525MB/s, Write: 500MB/s

Make sure you have the latest BIOS installed.

so it wont run at half that then/?

Read the reviews on the SSD'S before you buy one.

Most  SATA  controllers will work with most SSD'S .

However ,there are some SSD'S that are just plain garbage.

OCZ had a piece of junk (OCZ 128GB Petrol ) that can be had quite cheap.

There's a reason for that, DOA'S!

So buyer beware.

You should run Win 7 because of the trim support that is built into the OS.

Supposedly some SSD'S have a program that let's you do this with XP,but I haven't tried it.
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.

I am using OSZ Vertex Turbo and Trasncend 25s-m SSD drives. Have been happy with both although Transcend drive is a bit slower when compared to OSZ.

Yes, the OSZ looks the best!
