Question Upgrading CD drive To fit SATA SSD

Jul 12, 2020

I have a dell Vostro 3578 with an optical drive and 1 TB of HDD storage. I am planing to buy an adapter (CD drive to SATA caddy) for the HDD and add a new SATA SSD to the default HDD location. Will the performance be affected? Are there any thing else I have to look for (like power issues etc..)? What level of speed can I expect ?
Thanks in advance :)

That's good plan, if it works performance will be affected because SSDs are much faster, You'll have to clone or reinstall windows on SSD to feel the difference.
