Default Better Game Performance?

if i install my games on a secondary hard drive, with nothing on it (60gb) would they run better because windows and all my other junk is on the primary?

i dont think your going to see any difference in gaming performance unless the main drive you use is almost full, then an empty one may give you some better results.

The only thing it will possibly help with is the load times, and they wont be big enough to worry about.
