As you can see the hard drive affects the score a big time. Here's the shot of the hard drive that's in there:

Do Nothing. Index score of 5.9 is the most you can get for this type of HDD. Otherwise get SSD.

I see. Thanks. What would be the minimum required size of an SSD drive to put OS on to get one of those 7.x scores for it? After reading that thread I thought to buy a smaller SSD drive for my drive C and keep the 1TB regular drive for the bulky stuff (data, videos, etc.) Do you think this would work?

Well, I have a high-end system, so why not expect more from the hard drive? I just don't want to invest way too much in a nascent technology like SSD yet.

There are faster drives without going to SSD. However, If you do go that route all you really need is enough space for the OS and swap file.
