So just to keep it short, im running out of space on my computer and already have both m.2 drives filled up, i was looking for around a 4 TB internal hard drive as my 5tb external just recently failed. is this a good drive to go with? il be using this for storing games and im just not very knowledgeable about hard drives. Am i going to notice 7200rpm vs 5400 in loading times? Thanks.

Depends on intended workloads.
Seagate Barracurdas are all SMR drives with terrible write performance consistency.
If you're going to do a lot of writing to the drive, then choose a different model instead.

You can use SMR drives for archives, backups, user media storage. Not a good choice for games drive though.
What would you recommend then? I intend on spending less than 100 dollars, 150 at most.
