I purchased an enclosure, and although it was a 2.5" enclosure, my drive was just barely too big for it (probably having more platters than the enclosure was meant for? Not sure). But this leads me to a point where all of my options are open to me again.
One question I have is; What is the average read/write speed of an eSATA 5400rpm drive? Would it be much slower than my 7200 when it comes to playing games? If the only thing that this effects are load times between missions/levels, I wouldn't mind that so much. But if it drastically effects my actual gameplay, then obviously I wouldn't be installing it internally.
Question two is; If I do use this as an external, I would have to return the enclosure I purchased, and wait for another one to ship out, and hope that it actually fits this time. So, is there some SAFE, and easy way to create a simple enclosure for your drive? Obviously I wouldn't be carrying it around this way due to it not being quite as secure (possibly).
Above all else, you're the geekstogo, so if there are other options here I would greatly appreciate hearing them! I'd love to put this to the best use that I can for obvious reasons
