Solved 5900 RPM vs 7200 RPM in gaming Tags: Gaming Storage Last response: April 1, 2014 6:37 PM in Storage Share PeryForTheHunter April 1, 2014 6:24:55 PM I currently have a Seagate Barracuda Green 2TB 5900 RPM. My question is if I get a second HDD such as the Seagate Barracuda 2TB at 7200 and used that to store my games will it increase performance in games?
