Hi, i am trying to find a new faster HDD and not really a SSD because i want to put a lot of things on it and i am also trying to find a cheap one because mine is 5400 rpm and it always goes up to 100% on task manager, i also really cant play a lot of games any more and cant stream. I just got this computer 2 months ago and have 100 GB out of 500 left of storage

7200RPM is the fastest HDD, although you could look at an SSHD which is a hybrid of the SSD and HDD. Other option to consider is Optane if your motherboard is new enough, makes your HDD act like an SSD to a degree.
