How much space do you have left on the drive? If it's close to ful then yes it will slow down drastically..
I would consider a separate drive for your OS and use the other one for games, or depending on your hardware/budget, a SSD might be right up your alley.

The dips from your HDTune test is because it is an OS drive, so other programs will use up cycles during the test and cause drops in read speed. Everything looks fine in that pic wink.gif
