Hello, Everyone! I currently use a MBPr that has a 256gb internal SSD and installed Windows Server 2008 via boot camp, partitioning only ~60GB so hard drive space is at a premium. I'm just wondering, would it be possible for me to install battlefield 3 onto an external ssd and play via usb 3.0? How much of a speed decrease would I expect to see? Would it make a big difference if I purchased a 7200 rpm drive instead?
I apologize if I posted this in the wrong category.

I'm not sure how fast external SSDs are. If they are faster than hard disks, then yes you might be better off with that. It would also help if you are recording your screen - writing to seperate drive wouldn't decrease performance.
