I have generally preferred to partition large hard disks -

- defragging a smaller partition is quicker
- I prefer to have the O/S on its own separate partition for security,
apps on a second, data on a third - backing up is easier
- putting the swap file on a separate partition can help speed things up
a little

But all a matter of personal choice.
