If the OS is on the HDD and the HDD is having a tough time dispensing data to the OS/system, then yes that's the root of your issue. Ideally you should have the OS, apps and games on the SSD and making sure it doesn't have more than one partition and you're only filling it by half, the rest 50% is empty to maintain good performance from your SSD.
