It’s called the harddrive


It’s called the harddrive bottleneck. Traditional harddrives can only spin so fast and bring up so much data at once with their read and write times. Not only that but you also may be getting a bottleneck from the SATA 3.0gbps connection to your harddrives (compared to a 6gbps). The easiest way to do this would be to set up a raid (which I know nothing about) or to buy an SSD. Solid State Drives are much, much faster than traditional harddrives because they have no moving parts and can bring up multiple HD streams with no problem. Look into SSDs. They also make your computer start up tremendously faster and programs will open at least 2-3x faster.
