You can actually put quite a lot of applications on that 120GB drive.

I have a 128GB Kingston. Win 8 Pro, Office 2013, Adobe Lightroom, Corel VideoStudio, PaintShop Pro, etc, etc, etc
Approx 50GB used space. Applications generally don't take all that much room. 1 or 2 GB maybe.

OS and just about ALL my applications on it. Games, movies, etc live elsewhere.

What you want on the HDD is very large things. Games, movies, etc.
See this tutorial for managing space with that SSD:

But I regularly use BF4 which is 60GB but takes a long time to load on a HDD so would you recommend having it on a SSD or a HDD if I only have one SSD at the moment

It'll be a squeeze, but you can probably do it. That would be the only thing, apart from the OS and other necessary small things.

I'd recommend you to install/move the BF4 to your SSD. It is of course your own personal preference, but the load times will be muuuch faster, when launching battlefield, loading maps etc.
