Default ssd connectivity issue on older pc

OK, so my Spousal Unit keeps complaining about how long her older HP/Compaq takes to boot. Since I put an SSD boot drive in my Dell a few months ago and greatly appreciated the speed of everything thereafter, I bought a pretty good sale Transcend 128 GB SSD to put in her old HP to use as a boot/OS drive. I would keep her old hard drive installed to use for anything local I couldn't get on the new boot SSD.

Well, I just cracked the case and there are only two SATA cable sets -- one for existing hard drive and one for the DVD/CD and it looks like there are no more spots for any on the MB.

DO I have to get a PCI card? If so, are there any recommendations?

Or is there some kind of splitter I can buy?

Her PC is a Compaq-Presario FJ379AA-ABA SR5518F.
