Hello there. i have recently been thinking about buying a new hard drive as i need more storage and mine is becoming outdated. i am considering a usb 3.0 external hdd for the portability and i am wondering whether it will be fast enoguh to record fraps videos onto and run games such as world of warcraft and call of duty from? Thanks. :)

If you're not using it with a laptop, just use MSATA. It's significantly faster than USB 3.0. Its only disadvantage is that it can't hot-swap—it must be turned on before you start the machine—but that's not really an issue in a desktop environment.

eSATA*. mSATA is a laptop thing. My mistake.
