    Do you think i'll be Ok if i save my bootcamp Windows games into a memory card? I've ordered an imac top 27 except with a 256 gb ssd, and don't want to loose too much space in my Windows partition...

    Which memory card should i GO? I play games like battlefield 4...

    Regards

    It will work, just very very slowly, to the extent that it will probably drive you mad.

    look at the speed ratings here

    I would try and borrow one from a friend first to try it out, it is likely you will change your mind once you have experienced the speed

    You are much better off getting:

    a) An external USB 3.0 drive
    b) RAID-0 (striped) USB 3.0 drives (faster)
    c) An external Thunderbolt SSD.

    Option a) would be perfectly fine and shouldn't impact load times too much, as long as you're not trying to also record footage to that drive as well.
