For gaming, there will not be a difference apart from load times, because the game will not access the hard drive during the game.

As for general performance there will definitely be a difference, mainly due to the RPM difference.

yes it would but i don't think by much but I would buy it any ways because if it's saying boot disk error that drive is going and I would replace it.

It will help enormously. I just went from a 7200 RPM drive to a 5200 RPM drive.... and its killing me. I'm not even attempting to load any games newer then Half Life.
