My OS drive is a 300GB 10k rpm western
and my steam hard drive is a 500GB 7,200rpm western.
There probably won't be an increase. You're going from a full 10k drive to a dedicated, emptier 7.2k drive.

You can avoid re-downloading all your games if you want. I have done this recently and it saved a lot of time.
