Motherboards & SSD's

I am trying to learn what it takes for a motherboard to be compatible with
a SSD? I googled a bit, but only found other people asking on forums. This
is the motherboard I am using:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157271

What is it that tells me whether or not this board is compatible?

Thanks in advanced for any help!

    Sure SSD's are compatible with that board (and ANY board with a SATA III 6Gb/s port, honestly. Really, SSD's will still work on any SATA port, just bottlenecked by the loss of bandwidth from SATA I and II ports).

    You're TOTALLY safe with that board though because of the 2 SATA III ports it has.
  2. Thank you, do I need to buy special SATA cables for those slots?

    There ARE specific SATA III 6Gb/s cables, but they should have come with the mobo (at least one). If not, one will probably come with the SSD.
