    I am going to load bootcamp on an external drive but not sure which one to use.

    1 is a 40 gig 5400 RPM firewire 400 drive and the other is a 7200 RPM 250 gig Firewire 800 drive.

    I wana Know if there will be a noticable difference in the two when I am playing games. Is 400 fast enough?

    Thanks

    Windows won't boot a firewire drive because of an issue with the drivers, but USB will work. Check this thread out.
