In the windows experience index, I got a subscore of 5.9 for my primary hard drive.
Is my HDD still good enough even though it is probably 6-7 years old

the hdd affects just the load times. and overall system responsiveness. in games all you'd see from an ssd is faster load times, in windows you'd see a faster (much faster) load of any program, faster responsiveness, faster boot times. the s.m.a.r.t. values look ok (no re-allocations, no uncorrectable sectors) so you can keep using it if you're happy with it.
