I also do all my gaming from usb, once it's loaded into ram etc etc, hardrive doesn't even come into it, only when it's loading a new chapter etc etc. Games will load very quickly on yours, mine do on a 7200rpm.

Happy gaming;=}

Yes. I do almost all of my gaming off of an external HDD (K) and other than a few seconds extra time to load a game, no problems at all.

This is my set up, lots of external stuff, no problems.

1st: How did you change your External HDD icons within COMPUTER?

2: How did you get the recyble bin nearly in the centre of your taskbar?

Cheers m8.
