Ronnie - You only have two SATA ports in this system both are in use (current HD & Optical drive).

So you'll have to decide which device you are going to swap out. You can either take the optical drive out to install a second HD or SSD or take the current HD out and put in a SSD.

There isn't enough room or power or I/O connections to supply a third device.
