I always had a kinda slow boot time(40 seconds) and then i had to wait 2 minutes so the pc will load stuff normally
Now i switched a gpu(from 9600gt to 280x) and the boot and the time it takes to load the pc is a bit longer,is it related to me having 5400 rpm hdd?
Changing to 7200 rpm will help?
Note: i have 4gb ram and an i5 2320 so it isnt neither of them

Yes it will definitely be your HDD. A really good 7200 rpm Drive will help but to really get a noticable difference you want to get an SSD. Can get a 120gb one for about £50-60 I believe.

Also running a free program Called CCleaner will help. Run the cleaning process on that then go to options, start up manager and disable stuff that starts up on boot that you dont need.

I have a 7200 rpm drive on windows 8.1 and my boot takes about 40 seconds. Do not have a dedicated GPU either.

Hope that helps!

Yeah if you install windows on it that would make windows boot ALOT faster. Most people can boot in something like 5-10 seconds. Like a full boot. Also any program you install on the SSD will load faster, be more responsive, files will open faster. Just the general responsiveness and snappiness of windows will be alot better.

So Most people will have Windows along with most used programs and files on an SSD with everything else being on the HDD. Hope that helps.
