Hi, I recently bought an Asus ROG G750JX-TB71 and i'm planning on popping in an 840 Pro SSD in the other free empty drive space. I'm wondering if the accessories I need to mount and install it are included with the laptop or if i need to make separate purchases.

Another thing is if the laptop includes an installation disk of windows 8 i can use to install it in the SSD once i pop it in?

Not sure, but the G75 came with the extra hard drive caddy installed. You can use Macurium Relect to clone your hard drive to your new SSD. I would move the SSD to the 0 slot, not sure that it is nessary just less confusion latter on down the line. You can also Clean Install to you new SSD. See this thread (http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?28758-GUIDE-G55-G75-Upgrade-Notes&country=&status=) it is a sticky for the G75 and G55 but the procedure is pretty much the same for a G750. Don't downgrade to BIOS MBR, use the procedure for clean install UEFI GPT. Good luck
