I currently have a Intel 520 180 GB SSD installed on my desktop. I got a Samsung 830 as a gift and I was wondering if I can just install it as a 2nd drive. I plan on using it basically as an extension for when my first SSD fills up. Would there be any issues with two having different controllers and therefore different drivers?

You can install it just fine as a new drive, though because they are different you shouldn't try anything like RAID with them.
