On the Opinions forum, a lot of people suggested a 7200 rpm HDD instead of the slower WD Green one.

What are the main differences between a slower drives and faster ones. Also which ones would you recommend for a Gaming/Editing pc.

Thanks for all the recommendations and if you have any further questions just comment. Thanks !

You could go for a 5400 RPM WD Blue for a little less. While spinning at the same speed, it would be faster than the now discontinued Caviar Green hard drive (the Green color was merged into the Blue color).

Wow, never knew that Greens have been discounted. Will probably go for a Blue then. Thanks !
