It is possible, but not advisable due to various reasons, specially because HDD will hinder the performance. I would advise you to use the SSD as your 'primary' drive, for instaling Windows and Programs, and the HDD for other data.

For the SSD, look at Samsung 840 Pro 256 gb.

If you wanna install many games at once, you can get a larger size. I think samsung released 850 series ssd. If you can wait, then wait for 850 series. Otherwise 840 series is fine. Pro series has 5 years of warranty compared to 3 years of evo.

is that the only difference between evo and pro series? or is there a speed difference as well?

All the reviews on the net are for the 256 gb drive. And a review on the flipkart page for the 128 gb one says its not as good. Dunno how much that should be trusted,but since you have the budget, go for the 256 gb one. Its still 5k below your budget.
 
IMO you should wait for 850 series to arrive. It's really a good upgrade over 840 with better speeds, lower temperatures and higher durability.
