I just ordered most of my needed parts for a build I will do this week. Some items I already had. Below is a list. My question is two things. One is there would I see any benefit in buying a SDD and I have always wanted to do an exter. drive. What is the best hook up if you did a usb-2.0 or a e-sata. I'm a web surfer and gamer but never game on line.

SSDs are fast for loading the OS and software, but does not do much for gaming frame rates. Besides, they (SSDs) are still quite expensive.

As for External storage, get one with a colling fan as well as eSATA. I have two of these and they both work very well especially on eSATA -

For the eSATA, I had to download the jmicron drivers because the controller on my motherboard was jmicron.
