You do realize that each drive's rotational speed in your list is between 5400rpm's and 7200rpm's? If the drives are meant for storage alone and not to be accessed by game libraries, then you can pick up the 5400rpm variant. If you're looking for a speedy drive, then you should look at the 7200rpm drives. That being said, where are you located and if you're looking at a 7200rpm drive, I'd suggest you look at an SSD to have your OS, app's and games library on.
