1. 120GB is more than enough space for just the OS. I know there are some at 60GB but that's a bit small. It's best to leave some free space so that the SSD performance won't be compromised.
2. Anything having to do with the OS should go into the SSD. Anything else should go into the HDD. You can move games between the two drives depending on what games you will play at any given time. Best to not jump around though. So a bad scenario will be: you play a different game tomorrow than you do today and each time, you swap them between the SSD and HDD. Less writes to the SSD is preferable. So if you play those two games often, just keep them both on the SSD until you no longer play them. Also not all games need to be on the SSD.

First off, thanks for the prompt reply!
1. Alright, you said that 120GB would be suitable, so thanks for a good number to shoot for (I almost bought a 30GB SSD haha). My only concern is that I would rather stay cheap and get a 60GB because I read that a Windows 8 clean install only takes up 20GB. If that were true would you still recommend the 120GB over the 60GB?
2. Thanks so much for the example about writing onto the SSD, I had heard that too many writes shortens its lifespan (So thanks for confirming). And just to clarify, with Steam, would I have to put the entire
Steam program files folder in the SSD and install only a few games, or would I be able to only put specific games' folders (from steamapps) onto the SSD? My guess is that there would be an unhealthy amount of writing if I put everything on the SSD, and I don't know if the directories would even work (If that matters. I don't know, I'm a bit of a layman when it comes to the specifics of computers)
3. Sounds good to me
