HDD speed are more or less the same when you deal with high I/O operations. Instead of speed I would focus more on pricing and reliability for HDD.

Both drives are more or less equal in performance and reliability (5 years for both I believe)
I would say pick the cheapest one.

128mb cache difference, not that it matters much. Otherwise yeah I'd also be more preoccupied by reliability rather than a small speed difference.

Or brand loyalty if you're into that sortof thing.

Im planning to get one of those internal hdd for internal storage where I can install my games and load them from there, at this point which one is better?
https://www.amazon.com/Seagate-BarraCuda-3-5-Inch-Computers-ST6000DM004/dp/B01LOOJBH8 BARACUDA PRO 6tb


https://www.newegg.com/p/234-000G-000W5 WESTERN BLACK 6tb

which from these 2 hardisks is faster in performance and everything?
That's the 128Mb Cache version (as opposed to the 256MB), which means there's no real performance gain over the WD Black. They both come with 5 year warranties, and while I'm personally partial to the WD Black lines, the 'Cuda Pros have certainly stepped up their game. I think their performance will be close, and either one is just as likely to be the Golden Egg that runs until you replace it, or the Runny Egg that dies 2 years down the road with no warning. Without a brand partiality, I'd go for pricing between these two.

can you explain me something because i dont unserstand taty_one.

why some people prefer the baracuda pros againt the western blacks?/
and some another people prefer the blacks against the baracuda pros??

i mean some people say that baracudas pros are faster than blacks
and some another people claim that blacks are faster than baracuda pros..

i have seen some benchmarks in gaming that shows that baracuda pros are faster in loading times against black westerns
and some another benchmarks shows that blacks are faster in loading times against baracuda pros//

Sounds like it's buyer's choice, as both are viable. Hope you made a good decision!!
