So i bought the samsung evo 120gb ssd for $125 at frys, now the 240gb ssd is $140. lol clearly I'm going to exchange it, its only been 2 weeks. I already installed windows 8.1 and used my code, how can reinstall my operating system again? or do i have to buy the second ssd, then change the drive the operating system is stored on?

If you're not concerned about your data, simply reinstall like you did before. Worst case, microsoft will have you call to verify your key for windows activation. Answer yes I will only be using this code for 1 machine total (something worded like that) and they will grant you new activation on your new ssd. This prevents you from using the same key on multiple drives. Hope this helps!
