Default I need help

I have spent a decent amount on a standard gaming computer, which has worked wonders. I'm not much of a computer tech, so I came here.

I only have a 160GB harddrive which wasn't enough, so I put another one in which is the same kind of harddrive. Now nothing runs well gaming wise. I play alot of League of Legends and it spikes from 10-55 fps on the lowest settings.

If you know what's wrong, please tell me.

Cheers,
Richard

How did you configure the hard drives?
Which hard drive are you loading LoL (I think that's the gaming code for League of Legends right) from?
Did you check to make sure you didn't bump any of the RAM or the GPU (you could take them out and re-seat them to make sure they are ok).
Maybe the extra hard drive is too much for the power supply to handle?

Could you list the specs of the computer?

Are you saying you installed the game on the other hard drive you installed?

I can't understand what you were trying to type here.

Do you have video card installed as well?

As for the hard drive you could get a desktop hard drive, Take it out of the enclosure and install it in the PC then install Windows on that.
