I want to say no, because hard drives usually don't effect framerates. But perhaps the game sometimes has to load new parts of the map, and your HDD can't keep up. But I wouldn't look at the HDD first. Try to check your temperatures during these events and see what it shows. Maybe you're getting too hot and it starts throttling.
