Installing 2.5mm sata ssd

I have bought Dell XPS 8930 at costco and want to install Sandisk Ultra II ssd. Is it possible to directly install this in a sata slot or do I need a 2.5" to 3.5" mount. Thanks for the help.

RE: Installing 2.5mm sata ssd

The Dell manual does not detail whether screw holes are provided to mount an SSD in hard drive slot.  Best I can tell you is to power it off, open the case and look.  I see holes in the secondary hard drive mount that MAY work but not in the primary hard drive mounting.  An adapter may be needed.
