Hello adudethatneedshelp,

Not sure why but there is no info at your link regarding SATA ports, is the MB at the link here the same model of board that you have

that SSD is the 2.5" type so will just need to be mounted in one of the drive bays and require a power cable from the power supply and a SATA cable to one of the SATA ports on the motherboard.

If you look at the top right hand corner of the board you will see two red, one orange and one black port, these are SATA ports and where you can connect an SSD, the two red are for a RAID set up so would suggest that you use one of the other two.

Oh no - they aren't solar powered or wireless. :)
the cable for power will already be available from the power supply unit.
the SATA cable for data transfer between the drive and the motherboard will need to be purchased.
you should probably get a few, one for the SSD, one for a DVD unit and another for a HDD if you ever need more, cheaper, storage.
they cost about $2 each, any PC store will have them or order them online.
