Absolutely. That's how everybody does it. Only the OS needs to go on the SSD. There are a few little settings to make the OS fit into less than 20GB. And even a lot of installed programs (except for games) take little more room. Games and user data go on the spinner. For that kind of setup a 64GB SSD is ample. And you will be amazed how the system performance improves.
