2.5“ SSD in a 3.5” desktop drive bay normal?

I want to put to buy a 2.5" SSD to use in my desktop. May I know whether they are using the same types of power and data connection? Do I need to buy adaptor and a enclosure?

This is my motherboard

As I recall, my desktop uses a "L- shape" connector for the hard drive.

The SATA connector on standard 2.5" drives is identical to what a 3.5" drive uses.

Depending on your exact chassis, you may need an adapter plate in order to properly mount the drive. (Some SSDs come with one.)
