I will be using an SSD as my primary. If I'm doing in game video recording. Should I use a 5400rpm drive to record to, or would there be a performance difference compared to a 7200rpm drive. And would there also be a difference if the drive runs on sata 2 or sata 3?

For spindle disks in general SATA3 doesn't make much difference over SATA2. As for if a 5400rpm drive is enough for video recording, depends on the resolution and quality you're recording at. It should be okay, but if you're recording at, say, 2560x1440 then probably not.

Some 5400 RPM drives are better than 7200 RPM drives for video recording. Wrap that around your head.

Higher platter densities at lower rpms can still be faster than low density high rpm. So say a 3tb wd green should be better for video recording than a 500gb wd black drive.
