SATA 3 controller

Can I buy a SATA 3 controller for my ASUS P5KPL-AM SE motherboard so I can achieve maximum speed on my Corsair Force 3 SSD? Or would I need to buy a new motherboard for SATA 3?

These are for PCIe (usually the short white one on the board), if you have something in there, like maybe Azalia sound thingy, then depending on how important things are, you face a tough choice.
You might be using the Intel G31 graphics and the CH7 Realtek audio so I can't help wondering what's in your slots ?

If you'll pardon the expression !

I am using a wireless adapter on the PCIe one, but thanks for the help!
