External Hardrive question.

Well, it seems like I've been abusing this forum a while but I have yet another question. I am running out of hard drive space on my computer. If I uninstall and re-install all of my games into an external hard drive will my game's performance decrease by a noticeable amount? Would you guys recommend me doing so?

It'll be bottlenecked by the USB connection so loading times will probably be slower. I'd just buy a large internal drive and install games to it.

Yeah, wish I could but I currently have a laptop. Which I forgot to mention....

Edit: anyway, I'll probably end up just uninstalling what I have already beaten or games I have already played. Thanks, I probably should of done more research before asking the forum.

It will be a lot slower. Buy a new drive and clone your current one on it is my suggestion.
