Would it's lifespan suffer if I use it for everything instead of just as a boot drive and to store a couple of games?

I'll be building a gaming system, but I'm barely using 60 gb for everything in my computer since I don't download any videos and mostly use microsoft office.

I was just wondering if the installing/deleting of games would have a big impact on my SSD's lifespan. I use Steam to manage my games, so I'll probably rotate the titles in my library every couple of month.

The SSD I'm getting is the Kingston Hyperx 3K.
