Absolutely. Windows 7 HP 64 bit takes maybe 16GB total (may be more, or may be less. I am going off the size of the "Windows" folder, as I have games and other things installed and thus can not get a reading on just windows itself without reinstalling).
Also note that 32 bit and 64 bit take up about the same amount of space iirc.

Windows shouldn't take up that much space. 20GBS tops.
That is more up to the user though, isn't it? I would rather have windows and my most common programs (CPUz, Realtemp, AI Suite II, Office, Chrome/Opera/FF, and Afterburner/Precision) all on the SSD just so that they are ready as soon as the computer boots. But they also don't take but maybe 2GB total.
Everything else, like files, documents, other programs, musik, should be on the HDD or RAID array. YOu can install games to the SSD if you wish, but it really does not make that much of a difference in most newer games. Older games like Global Operations and MOH:AA load much faster with the SSD install though (but they load such a small amount of data that it is almost not worth the hassle to change the install off the HDD)
