Cache is a type of working memory that allows the drive to perform faster.

RPM is the rotations per minute of a hard drive which effects the speed of data transfer.

Solid State Drives are non-moving memory, so access speed is instant.

          After upgrading from Vista 32 to Windows-7 64, I thought I'd increase my RAM beyond 3-GB that Vista 32 recognized up to 6-GB. Operation is now faster and smoother than before, even with lots of programs open. The crucial memory was inexpensive, easy to install, and improved performance.
