Personally I would just create a folder named Games or Data rather than partitioning my drive; to me it's easier.

But yes, you can partition your SSD the same way you can a HDD without any performance problems.

I did not partition my 256GB ssd. I had no reason to partition the drive.

The SSD should connected in SATA III port, and what is your operating system, whether your partition has been aligned? You can refer to this article: http://www.disk-partition.com/help/align-partition.html , after you launch this feature and select align partition it will detect whether this partition has been aligned. If not suggest 1024 sector.

You'd better connect in sata III, and use SSD speed test software "AS SSD Benchmark" to test your read and write speed.
