Default Swapping hard drives

I currently have Win 8 Pro installed on my SB 1TB HDD and use my Force 3 SSD 128GB for games and software but I am starting to run out of space.

If I was to consider installing Win 8 on the SSD and use the HDD for software and games, would there be enough space on the SSD after updates etc?

I am only considering this as the HDD is quite slow.

Updates don't take all that much. As long as you don't install everything, and only install some software, on the SSD, you should be fine.

Kind of depends on what software you install on the SSD besides Win8, as well.
Laptop: MSI GT70 2OC-059us | i7-4700MQ | 16GB | GTX 770m | 500GB SSD / 750GB HDD | 17.3" | Win10 Pro
Desktop: 4690k | 12GB g.Skill RipJaws | GTX 970 | 520hx | Z87X-UD4H | Corsair Vengeance C70 | Corsair H110 | Acer 25" | Acer 22" | Win10
Mobile: Samsung Galaxy Note 5
