You could use that space to install the games, that's about it. But 40Gb is not very much. I am not sure what games you're playing but some can take 15Gb HD space. Most don't but some do. It's still the same processor, memory, etc.

However sometimes computer makers will partition a drive and use it for backups. You're better off backing up to a flash drive or another external drive rather than just a separate partition.
