    Most likely you will need the kit, its like a harness that goes inside the tower so it will fit… you do not need the kit… you can also use double sided velcro and just stick it anywhere in the case after you hook it up… but if you want it to be professional you need the mount that makes it the size of a standard 3.5 inch Hard Drive.

    If you have a laptop you will only need the SSD, but if you have a desktop computer you will need the upgrade kit to go along with it. Hope this helps!

    The second link for the upgrade kit is if you want to basically clone your current hard drive to the SSD. The first one will be a fresh install and just like starting a new computer. If you choose the first option you can simply save all the files you want first from your pc to an external hard drive or use dropbox. Then once it is installed you can copy back the files. This is how I set mine up to insure there were no installation problems.
    You also don’t need the kit if your current hard drive is the same size. You can simply unscrew it from the current kit and screw in your new SSD. That is how I installed my SSD in my laptop.

    It seems that you just wat to do a standard install.
    The SSD as most SSD’s has a 2.5″ form factor.
    Most tower cases only hve bays for 3.5″ form factor drives.
    So if its just general fitting you want a simple adapter.
    These are display in your first amazon page for the drive if you page down to the section
