So this is the case a friend is gonna give to me next week.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

After checking the specs, it doesn't seem to have an internal 2.5" drive bay, so I was wondering how exactly I'm going to install the SSD? Would it just adjust or something or is there a way to do this?

Or should I just save myself the trouble and buy a brand new case with a native 2.5" bay?

Well as long as the case comes with Hard drive racks you can just lay the SSD in the HDD tray and be fine. if that case doesn't come with one. then most any case the market today has some form of SSD holding lol

OH HEY! That's the exact SSD I'm going to get.
So you're saying it comes with a 3.5 to 2.5 tray bundled in the box?

Yes some do. I would personally go with a bigger SSD (250-256 gb) so you can have more room for games/apps.

Here is one I'd consider:
$179 shipped and is 250 gb's before Windows install.
SAMSUNG 840 Series MZ-7TD250BW 2.5" 250GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
