Can I replace the hard drive with an SSD?

SO I like this guide however can I replace the hard drive with an SSD. Now that 1TB SSD are on the market. I can save $1200 by duping the hard drive and replacing it with a 1TB SSD.

It looks like I need an SSD adapter mount kit and also what about the temperature sensor?

Yes you may run to temperature sensor issues. I would confirm compatibly with someone like OWC before buying anything. Also, I would be very reluctant to put out $1200 on an SSD. Take a look at the new full sized hybrid hard drives. I have been very happy with the laptop hybrid drives (Momentus XT) and am eager to get one of these new drives for my MacPro.
