The reason I ask is because those are the cause of all the slow downs I may experience. When it's not thrashing my drive the game runs well.

There was another MMO that use to do that to my old machine, I want to say AO, and it's totally un necessary. Frequent HD access can cause a lot of chop in a game.

I wonder if going with a RAID configuration would make HD access smoother or cause less chop.
