Using my old hdd with my new ssd on a dekstop pc

Hello, i just bought a new ssd even though i had no idea how i should install it and such.
I've been reading alot about it and saw thoose cloning kits (http://www.komplett.se/corsair-ssd-hdd-upgrade-kit/782084).
I'm thinking of buying one of thoose but is it really just to plug in the ssd, put the disc in, and install? (This is the ssd i bought:
http://www.amazon.com/Kingston-Digital-2-5-Inch-SV300S37A-120G/dp/B00A1ZTZOG/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1388109400&sr=8-3&keywords=kingston)

And here's the hdd i want to use with it and where i have my os and such:
http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Spinpoint-3-5-Inch-Internal-HD103SJ/dp/B002MQC0P8

I've also been copying files from my C: drive to an external hdd to reduce the used space of the disc so it's less than the capacity of the ssd which kingston said to do in their install video (which wasn't good enough for me to understand)
The reason why i'm doing a cloning instead of just a windows reinstall on the new drive is that i bought an used pc and he didn't have the windows install thing.
What should i do, what is easiest and what will peform the best?

    1 more question, do I need to change anything with the "ACHI" at the bios when cloning or do the cloning software handle that for me?
