SATA 3.0 Controller for Dell Precision T3500

I have just brought a SanDisk SSD for my Dell Precision T3500 but I found out the PC does NOT support SATA 3.0 (6Gb/s).

So what can I do for it?

I want to buy a SATA 3.0 controller for the PC, so which one do you recommend?

PS: the SSD is supposed to be used as OS drive so it must be "bootable".

Can this controller card help to make SSD bootable?

I want to use SATA 3.0 (6Gb/s) for T3500, too.

Did "HighPoint Rocket 640L card" work well?

Rocket 640L  works fine in the X4 Slot on the motherboard.
