Since the boot drive is an HDD, it is going to be destroyed by the other systems, nearly all of which make use of SSDs. Looking above, you can see this is the case, with just 0.5 MB/s being seen in the all-important 4K metric.

Write speeds are the same as above: pitiful compared to the SSDs in the chart. We see just 0.7 MB/s 4K write speed.

 

An SSD is a must upgrade to feel like you have a speedy computer and should probably be done before upgrading the GPU if you use the desktop for things other than gaming. It will help your game loading times, too, if the games are installed upon it.
