I just got a G750JX-DB71 and I have noticed I have 4 drives, 2 of which are SSD and each one is 128GB. The OS takes up a big portion of the C Drive. So a few questions.. I heard SSD's are better for gaming, so would it be advisable to install a game on one of my SSD drives? Also, can I merge both my 128GB SSD's into one 256GB SSD which would include my operating system? Is there a difference in performance when playing games on HDD or SSD?

Moving to notebook section...
EDIT: Done.

In answer to your question, there is a performance difference, and so I would recommend it. Load times will be much faster. :) I would not recommend merging the two drives, but that's really up to you.

Alright I will not merge them. So how does it work if say I wanted to install Counter Strike and World of Warcraft on the SSD drive that does not have my operating system on it? Never booted into a drive that didn't have an OS on it. If anyone could fill me in on how it works that would be great

You don't have raid config?
If not, then you just select that drive for the install folder, or use Steam Mover if you're a steam person (DONT USE CNET, FULL OF MALWARE) to tell it where you want the files.

Games load quicker on SSD, but the actual in game performance should not differ.

Having games saved to SSDs only makes a big difference if you play games with lots of loading screens. (I.E: Skyrim).

This absolutely, and at times World of Warcraft. ';x
