From my understanding, Green drives are slower 5,400 RPM drives.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

All western digital green drives are slow and not meant for gaming, your blue western digital is much more suitable. If you want to see the slightest of increase in loading time speeds you need to get a western digital black drive, and since you already have blue it's not really worth it. What I suggest is to either save up for an ssd and put your os main games on that, or get a 1 tb blue driver or up (not green) and put your games and os on that because it will be faster, because it has been less used. Then use for 500gb drive for storage.
