I would like to upgrade, currently the stock HDD want a SSD

So I am new to all this. Please forgive me for my lack of attention to detail. I've had my mac for over 12 years and now I would like to upgrade it. Currently is running stock. HDD but want to switch it to a SDD and was wondering.

What are you recommendations on upgrades when it comes to hard-drive, memory, and battery upgrades. I would like to change everything so I can make this faster.

This system is limited to 8GB of RAM and the drive port is limited to SATA II (3.0 Gb/s) so you do need to be careful that you get a SATA II compliant drive like a Samsung 870 EVO or Samsung 870 QVO

If you review the drives spec sheets you'll see it explicitly states support:

SATA 6 Gbps Interface, compatible with SATA 3 Gbps & 1.5 Gbps interfaces

If the drives spec sheet does not state this clearly like this is won't work reliability!
