So I've thrown together a gaming PC and ordered all of the parts, and realized I made a really stupid mistake.
I ordered a 5400 rpm HDD instead of a 7200 RPM HDD.
The hard drive in question is a Western Digital Caviar Green 500gb HDD.
It IS cheap, but it has good reviews.
Now, I was wondering - I'm currently using a 3 year old 500gb Seagate Barracuda 7200 RPM HDD, and I've heard all over just how terrible Seagate hard drives are.
Will there be any framerate loss in games with a 5400 rpm hdd ?
I understand that loading will take longer, but if I'm going to end up with tons of stuttering and crap it's going to be unacceptable.
