Okay so I have what I think is kind of a weird question. Recently I Installed an old 5400 rpm hard drive I was given from my buddies old pc into my Acer Nitro 5. I noticed that when I try to play games that are installed on the drive I experience fps drops and stutters. For example when I play Tony Hawk's American Wasteland I will drop from 60-57, or 60-44 every 5 or 10 seconds which makes this 15 year old game unplayable. My GPU, RAM, and CPU usage is completely normal so that couldn't be the issue. I tried swapping out the hard drive with another 5400 rpm drive I had lying around and encountered the same issues as the first drive which males me believe that this is a hard drive issue, both drives are 5400 rpm and 6 to 7 years old as well. Like I said I'm pretty sure these issues have to do with the age\speed of the drives but I thought it be best to post this and see what people reading this have to say. Any help would be appreciated.
