I was just curious. If you have two hard drives in your computer, and you have your games on one hard drive, while you have all your other practical applications installed on the other, would this increase the game performance and the system performance?

not necessarily...

the best increase of performance would be to have your
primary harddrive (drive 0) partitioned and to have
windows on the first partition, all your other software on
the second partition... and your windows swap file
on the secondary harddrive (drive 1). (you can keep
stuff you download and stuff, but you dont want to run
programs from this drive).

also having harddrives that ran at least 7500rpm
you would be able to load programs rather noticably
faster.

this would be the better configuration.
