Just went and grabbed the Samsung for £90 with all the mounts and cables which didn't seem too bad considering it was 85 on Amazon without that gubbins.|
I probably won't have many games on there as the graphics and processor aren't really up to the latest. Probably just Starcraft 2 and some Indie nonsense...
Is it worth using the various tools and programs to keep it up to speed or can I just bung it in like a normal HDD and enjoy the speed boost?

|Erm... i'm not even sure what the tools and programs are! i reckon you can skip them. Never noticed any slowness on either my desktop or laptop SSDs|
Indeed, no software needed as Windows uses the normal storage drivers.|
All the clever SSD stuff is in the BIOS for example if you install your OS with IDE selected you will run into problems. Install the OS on the SSD using AHCI or you will bugger up TRIM support.
Most tinkers you will see on the internet are about helping with capacity problems. They wont necessarily help performance or smoothness like disabling the page file will save you a bit of space but windows uses a page file for a reason.
