Does RPM matter for storage

Hi guys I am running out of space!!!!! I want to buy the cheapest HD over 1 terabyte that will give me good performance. For example, I want to double click on the HD and not wait 15 seconds for it to open. I am confused if higher RPM means just that; faster access to HD. I have this in my mind:

SAMSUNG EcoGreen F3 HD203WI 2TB 5400 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive for $140

Another question I have is when I download something, it is downloaded to my primary drive and everytime I have to copy it to my secondary drive and delete it from my primary drive, since I am running out of space. Is it possible to download data directly to any of my 3 drives? Thanks.

  1. RPm is how fast your hard drive spins, therefore giving faster access (higher is better). As for when you download things, each program/browser you use has options of where you can save data, just change the default save path.
  2. Solid State drives allow for very fast read/write and access to your files, faster than any HDD(ones with RPMs). But, they are more expensive.

    The Samsung spinpoinit series such as http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822152185&cm_re=samsung_spinpoint-_-22-152-185-_-Product is probably your best bet.
