Depends on the drive, but most of them only go from about 40-60MB/s transfer speeds, which is a huge bottleneck compared to newer 500GB single platter drives like the Western Digital Caviar Blues, Samsung Spinpoint F3's, and Seagate 7200.12's

Run an HDTune benchmark on read speeds and access times. Post here and we can tell you. Likely your access times are what hurt you the most. Your read speeds probably aren't great either. I can tell you PATA (IDE) maxes out around 75-76MB a second as I have an SSD on the PATA interface in my laptop. However, because of the fast access times my laptop runs very fast for being several years old.

How have you measured the performance drop? Through HDTune? Interesting it would drop, but I have noticed that the presence of files on a drive can impact its readings at times. Not sure why though.

Yeah though it seems windows makes a big difference
sata drive as a data drive got decent scores (+-30mb/s average min 15mb/s )
sata drive as os got weird (17mb/s average min 0.7mb/s)
