Can a y580 HDD be swapped to an SSD and how ?

i will be purchasing a new y580 this boxing week, not sure about the exact model just want to make sure it's a 1920x1080 res. screen, and i would really like to swap out the HDD for a SSd (around 256 gb)

here are some examples: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100006693%204802%20600414918%204017&IsNodeId=1&name=%24100%20-%20%24200

my other question is how will i get all the stuff from the HDD to the new SSD, how will i physically get the SSD in there and can i then maybe use the HDD as an external, and what SSD would you guys reccomend ( i was leaning towards mushkin chronons, or deluxe? not sure about difference between the two, or a samsung 840?? . . . )

  1. Yes it can. Watch this video. It is in a foreign language, but it shows how to get the job done.
