Well, maybe I have questions on the matter.

I've seen scopes mounted over the gas chamber as well as over the rear bolt carrier cover. What are the advantages/disadvantages of each?
Also, I was thinking of getting a compact 4x or less scope, perhaps something similar to this:

Is 4x overkill for the SKS, or should I go for greater magnification? I know shooting accurately past 200 yards is difficult, or so I hear...
