Should be enough, but SSD's are not designed for constant writes. Unlike HDD's, they last only a given number of data written (measured in TBW - terabytes written); after that, chips start not being able to store data anymore.
You can use the SSD for Windows and programs you want to open faster (like video editing software and heavier games) and a HDD for main storage.

So i should buy a HDD. Should I put Windows,fortnite and LoL on my SSD? And use the HDD to download music and stuff like that for example..?!

That concept is long out of date.

Yes, there is a theoretical TBW limit. But that limit is huge, even the published warranty number.
A typical 250GB SSD has a warranty of 75 TBW.

I have 7 SSD's in my current main system (listed below). Some of those drives have been in constant use for almost 5 years.
All 7 SSD's combined total about 45TBW.

Unless you are writing hundreds of GB per day, every day...SSD wearing out from too many writes is not an issue.
