Question for those of you with computers


Recommended Posts

I need a second hard drive for my computer, and I was considering getting an external hard drive that would connect through my USB port. Probably around 250 gigs. I was wondering how are those for speed wise? Like, would it be ok to install games on them, or would the fact that it's going through a USB cause a lot of slowdown?

If it's either USB 2.0 or Firewire it really shouldn't be a problem.


If anything you can just install all your games on your main HD and then move all other files to the storage drive so you don't have to worry about any possible lag while the external drive is talking to the main one.
