    Hi guys!
    Just a quick question.
    I have an iMac with only 250GB SSD and I want to use some of it to install BootCamp (for gaming purposes only).
    The thing is, there's not much space on it for everything :p
    The question is, can I install the games themselves on an External Thunderbolt drive with a 7200RPM drive inside and have it work as if it was on an internal SATA HDD?

    Thanks a lot :D:apple:

    Yup, that's what I have right now and I have Steam and Origin set to install games on it.

    Loads really fast! Definitely recommended!
