I am doing intense gaming.  My 10,000 revolutions per minute internal hard drive will be arriving on Wednesday as one of my Christmas presents.  I would like an external one as well!


Why would you be gaming? I thought you were smart enough to avoid that brain rotting time wasters.


A high RPM drive won't benefit you. You'll need a FW800 port to get some decent speed.

And for anyone that is seriously interested, you could put a internal drive in a large external enclosure (you'll need a large for fans..).

I am seriously interested, and the link in my first post is what you described.  Also, video games do not rot the brain.  It has been proven that stress can cause ill effects on the body.  If I did not play games, I would never do anything that would relieve my stress!
