Installing SSD on iMac?

Hello all, I was looking through the guides and did not see anything pertaining to my particular model.

Is it all any possible to upgrade to a SSD on my model?

I have 1TB HDD, but the boot up is taking 5 minutes, and the computer is noticeably slower from when I first bought it 21 months ago. I've used plenty of programs to optimize and speed up my iMac but I fear the harddrive is going to fail soon.

Anyone have any ideas? Thanks

A 21 mo old HD should not be failing - what's the SMART status tell you?

How much fee space do you have?

IMnsHO Maxing out the RAM makes more sense than adding an SSD.
