Hi,
So i bought a PS3 12 GB GO and it cannot keep anything for me :D  I am playing games,watching BLU-RAY movies, listening to music etc... And 12 GBs are totaly not enough for it all. So i didnt want to change my HDD, i wanted to add another usb 3.0 500 GB external HDD. But i have some questions :
1. I read somewhere that it can handle 4.7GB (or something like this). What does it mean? That it cannot handle 13 GB game? Or a big movie?
2. Can you recommend me a HDD?
3. How can i connect that HDD to the PS3?
4. Do i need to do something else?
5. Will it recognise that usb 3.0 HDD?

Thanks in advice ;)

1. Can't tell
2.I'd recommend replacing the HDD it's really simple just watch a tutorial . Getting a 1TB / 2TB hdd is cheap but remember to get a 5900RPM hdd , like this one :

3.Using an usb port ?...
4.Format the HDD
5.If the PS3 has usb 3 ports
