Just wanted to ask some of the Tech experts on TL regarding hard drive rpm. I'm not much of a tech guy so any suggestions would be appreciated. I searched for this topic, but couldn't find any previous threads, so I decided to create a topic for it.
I'm thinking of buying a new computer, particularly for gaming... I was wondering whether hard drive rpm is an important consideration when choosing a computer for such a purpose. Like I've settled on two choices... one is a six-processor core machine, the other is quad-core, but the machine with six has a 5400 rpm hard drive speed while the quad-core machine has a 7200 rpm hard drive speed. What are your opinions on hard drive speed? Is it important enough to justify purchasing the quad-core over the six-core machine solely on the basis of the better hard drive speed? Does it affect gaming? Does a slower hard drive rpm significantly affect the speed of a computer?
Answers related to these questions would be very much appreciated.
Thanks for your help!
