Best benchmark to compare HDD for gaming

I searched, and its just a mess of results, not relevant specifically to the HDD. But if I'm looking at the charts comparing HDDs for gaming, which specs should I be focused on to get the best performance?

Anything that ends in "per second", and "throughput".

Thanks for the responses.

As 90% of the benchmarks end with /second, that doesn't help a lot.

For throughput, should I look for max, min, or avg? Again, this is to judge the best HDD for gaming. Is it dfferent for rendering/editing machines?

So the IOMeter benchmarks don't have any use for what I'm looking for?

And is the PCVantage Gaming benchmark worth using?
