You don`t need a drive bay for an ssd, you can put it anywhere you want in the case.

On a side note, is there an appreciable difference between a Sata 2 HDD and a Sata 3 one
For the OS operations there is little difference between Sata II and Sata III. The OS usually deals with small 4K blocks and the R/W speeds for those will not exceed the Sata II capacity of most SSDs.

@AddRAM, he may have a laptop. He never said I believe.

Yeah I have an XPS 15 and the only option would be to get a caddy for the CD drive which is just silly. Desktops are better but I've got no money to spend on one now... -____-

You could put the current HDD into a caddy and store your user data there. These USB2 caddies cost very little. If your laptop is more or less stationary, that is a good solution. You can still keep essential stuff on the SSD for when you move around. A 128GB SSD has a lot of space. My Windows 7 systems take only less than 30GBs.
