Hi everyone.

I have a question concerning hard drive partitions. I play a few online games between two PC's, one of which is having a little trouble keeping up with the demands of the programs I'm using. The PC which is outfitted with hardware that is a little outdated is the one I am concerned about. This PC is running Windows XP Home Edition.

I routinely wipe everything and re-install windows every couple of months or so, and my games run a lot smoother after that. I do my best to not bog down my hard drive with unnecessary programs that drain the resources of my system, but after awhile, things still end up being laggy and slow.

My question is: Would creating a separate partition to run my games on exclusively benefit the quality of the gameplay - and, is having two separate partitions on the same hard-drive running the same OS something that I shouldn't do?
