Is installing games on a HDD a bad idea?

I'm building my PC next week, and I ordered a really small SSD (120 GB) because of my budget. I also have a 2tb 7200rpm Hard Drive, is this sufficient for gaming?

The only difference you would see if you install the games on the SSD would be the loading time.

It's fine to install game on the HDD. I have all my games on a 1tb HDD :p

As midnightsoul said, all putting games on an SSD will do is reduce loading times, it will not increase FPS or game stability.

yep, the vast majority of people I know all install the games on their mechanical hard drives. if this PC is soley for gaming then you could try fitting a couple of regularly used games and have the rest on the 2TB drive.
