Is an Intel 120gb ssd enough for dual booting Windows 8 and Mac OSX Mavericks?

I'm looking to dual boot Windows 8 and Mavericks together by using an Intel 120gb SSD. This drive will be using for booting the OS only; I have separate one 1tb drive for all my games and other stuff. Will this be enough for both OSes?

Thanks in advance.

  1. Yes.
  2. No. The boot drive will also hold other stuff eg printer driver and software that you can't change the install from C:.
  3. yes it enough but your need install OS on different OS on different HHDorSSD
  4. Yes it will work you might end up playing with the boot manager a fair bit though while your setting it up.
  5. You can partition your SSD
  6. If I partition the SSD, then my computer would treat it as 2 different drives, right?
    After that I could just use a boot-loader to decide which OS to boot into.

    Correct. And yes its big enough to hold both OS's, all you drivers, and a few apps (anitviris, anti-malware, media center, cd rippers, flash, acrobat reader...) (I have all that on my 64gb ssd with room to spare)
