Since I really have no clue, I want to ask here if any on you use external hard drives for your gaming...

No, I only use them for data, pics, videos, backups and the like.

I do, I have an e-sata enclosure with a 160 GB sata hard drive that I use for most of my games.
Works great.


It doesn't make any sense, Admiral. Were we better than the Japanese or just luckier?

I have a USB 500 Gb I use for data storage. It is much too slow for any other use.

Nope. I try to keep everything inside the case - not spread it around.
