I did the windows 7 system rating after building my gaming computer. everything is rated at 7.3 except the HDD which is 5.9. the hard drive I have is a:

WD Caviar Black 1 TB, SATA 3 Gb/s, 32 MB Cache, 7200 RPM, WD1001FALS

is this Hard drive going to impair my gaming? it was the best I could afford after the rest of the parts.

CPU = Intel i7 950
Motherboard = Asus P6X58D
RAM = Corsair XMS3 DDR3 6X 2GB
Power Supply = Corsair AX1200W
Graphics Card = GTX 580 2-way SLI

No. The only way you are going to get a faster rating is if you get a solid state hard drive which costs mega bucks.

The Windows rating is good to get a very general idea of your PC's performance. It is far from super-accurate. Your hard drive is fine. Once a game is loaded into memory, it is much more dependent on the CPU, RAM, and GPU.
