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 i have recently been thinking about buying a new hard drive as i need more storage and mine is becoming outdated.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.
