Adding SSD to existing SSD setup.

Hello all. I am running a comp with a 125gb SSD drive only. I just purchased a 240gb ssd- same brand and read/write speed. Any suggestions and tips on how to install and set it up? I use the comp for both gaming (digital DLs/steam) and work/personal use. I am running windows 7 64 bit.
Thanks!
