Ibook g3 500mhz with external fw 400 hdd

Would going for a 7200rpm with 16mb cache be worth buying for an ibook g3 500mhz dual usb 640mb's ram...

The reason why i ask is because i was installing ram and dropped a screw inside, i spent a long time trying to get the machine apart and couldn't exceed without feeling like i was going to brake the plastic. So i was wondering would running the main os, from a OWC mercury on the go pro harddrive be worth it? Would the firewire 400 port power the drive, and can this ibook boot from it?

Preferably this one:
