I really need one and have no idea how to put one in.

PC Case: Black Gamer Ultra GUA250
Motherboard: http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3645#sp

Can I put one in? And is it difficult?

Is this an SSD or a MicroSD card? A MicroSD card needs a card reader and the SSD is a complete stand alone drive.

There are two kinds of MicroSD card readers around, the internal device, like the Rosewill RCR-IC001 40-in-1, or the external, like the Kingston FCR-HS219.

Which would you recommend? I'd be using it on a monthly basis most likely.

If you have multiple computers an external one is nice that way you can just move it between computers, however personally I use the internal ones myself-their usually pretty straight forward, they are normally made to fit in a 3.5 inch drive bay (or 5.25 with adaptor) though there are a few that are made only for the 5.25 inch ones, and are relatively cheap and straightfoward-never had one fail regardless of brand, and are easy to install, most of them you install the drive into the bay, and plug the cable into a open USB connector on the motherboard. Some of the more advanced ones require a power connector from the PSU but thats not a big deal.
