    Basically, your new hard drive is slower than your old one.

    It probably won't make much of a difference for playing video games.
    The more RAM you have, the less of a difference it will make.

    Faster spindle speed means faster seek times and possibly faster sustained reads and writes. This won't have much effect on gaming especially when compared to GPU speed. It might make load time faster.
