SATA connections

Hello- I‘d like to upgrade my Dell XPS 8300 with a SSD drive. To use it at 6 GB/sec speed I must connect the SSD to SATA port 0 or 1 (the blue and white ones, both SATA III type, the MO is a Dell 0Y2MRG)- I opened the chassis and I’ve seen that port 0 is connected to the DVD drive- Can I use the port 0 to connect the SSD drive (moving the DVD connection to a black SATA II port)? Or maybe I should leave the DVD connected to port 0 and use a SATA II port for the HD drive (connecting the SSD to the white port 1)? Thanks in advance
