Default Games on External HDs

I'm unsure about this, but can I install games on my external HD instead of my main HD and will they still work well if I do?

Ya, you can. It should work perfectly, but it may be a little slower than if it were on an internal HDD. Does your HDD connect via USB 2.0 or Firewire?

It might be a little bit slower than an internal HDD, but nothing dramatic (asuming of course that it is USB 2.0).
