Default Re: computer lag, dual hard drives, help please

Yes, USB hard Drives are very slow, hence the fact that they're not supported.
Unless you're using a laptop, an internal drive is the way to go.
If it has to be an external, a 7200rpm Firewire drive with the Oxford 911 chip is your only option if you want similar performance to an internal drive.
