Default computer compatibility/hard drives

Can anyone recommend an external usb hard drive preferably under 200? Also here is my sandra report. Is my computer really compatible with Pro Tools 8? I have been using 8.05 on windows 7 and i'm convinced its my computer thats holding me back. (as well as the hard drive i was using to record to) but can anyone tell me if my computer is really not suited for pro tools 8 le and if so why. thanks!
