Will a external HD firewire be too slow for games?
Getting close to hopping on the bandwagon and installing XP. Since it looks like people are having problems geting XP bootable off a ext hd, Im thinking ill just install a small partition for the os(XP) and then install games on a firewire drive. WILL GAMES BE TOO SLOW? compared to how it would be on the internal macbook pro's that is. thnx

I know someone that plays WoW on an external FW drive on his Mac. I'm assuming Windows would be able to do it also.
...but I'm sure it works best on an internal drive. Just don't set all of the settings for high.

1) The Movies
2) Civ IV
3) CS:S (and I play for one of the top 20 clans in the UK, so we're a bit fussy too! it's fine)
I was amazed how well it worked to be honest. Firewire, rocks. Much better than USB2.0
