I'm playing IV again in preparation for V on my ps3.

I'm noticing more pop in and texture loading than I remember from my earlier play throughs. However I had recently got a slim after my fat YLODed.

My fat had a 7200rpm HDD, my slim has the standard HDD.

My question is, does IV stream from the disc or from the HDD? Will I get better performance by upgrading to a 7200 rpm again?

If I can recall GTA IV had a 5 or 6 GB install on PS3 and then the rest would
run off the disc. GTA IV had about 12 total GB all together.

To the HDD question I'm not sure if it would help drastically or not.
