    Is this SSD dying? Windows also works very slow when installing games.

    The attribute in red is Used Reserve Block Count or put simply the amount of the blocks kept in reserve that have been used.
    Now the current value is 100 but for some reason it went down to 1 at some point, however neither it nor Reallocated Sector Count says that the drive has had to replace any (look at Data where you can see that the number of times it has happened is 0).
    So it looks like the SMART-values are wrong rather than that it will stop working any minute (though is no guarantee that it will keep working so backup is always important).

    The attribute in yellow is usually caused by a faulty SATA-cable so you should probably think of replacing it because can that cause a variety of issues.

    About it being slow when you're installing games, maybe it has little spare space left?

    Also; you may well aready have done this but have you installed the new firmware updates for 840 EVO?
    Otherwise read speeds for your drive may drop with time.
