You will have to reinstall Windows but yes you should be able to add an SSD. Or you could do an image of the existing OS.

I don't see why not.  So long as there is an available SATA power adapter and SATA data port, you should be fine.

yes you can add additional drives
it has 4 sata ports (user guide) so 1 for the included 1tb drive and 1 for the dvd drive so you can add 2 more internal drives

ok. thanks.

>>You will have to reinstall Windows
I thought it was only an issue of motherboard capability to handle the extra cards?
you don't have to reinstall windows after adding regular HDD, right? what makes SSD different that windows reinstall needed.

@Josef, I am making the assumption that he wants to add an SSD but not replace the existing harddrive.

@25112, If this is the case, then you do not need to reinstall the operating system as Josef has stipulated.  However, if you are wanting to replace the existing harddrive with an SSD, then Josef's points are valid.
