Can I Upgrade from HDD to SSD on a Dell Optiflex 760 SFF ?

I want to upgrade from the factory HDD to a SSD, I've red on Google that it is possible to upgrade to an SSD,that you can connect it with the same cable that the HDD is connected but however when I open up the pc and I get to the HDD, there is a different cable that is attached to it than to the one that is required for an SSD and there aren't any other SATA cables so im a bit confused.Should I buy the cable separately or something?

2.5" SSDs use standard SATA power and data connectors - exactly as the SATA hard drive in the system does.

Smaller models may or may not have an error.  Older models in this series have bios thermal profile.  HDD Replacement is not valid.

Continued use may result in long term reliability issues, please press F1 if you would like to continue.
