You should be able to just throw the SSD in, boot from the install CD, then run disk utility and format it. You want Mac OS Extended (with Journaled - recommended - if you choose, see - Pick the right file system for your Mac's internal or external storage) and make sure you select GUID Partition Table under Options.

And yes, that is a good SSD.
