Default boot from external hdd

ok my house got struck by lightning so i have 3 computers lying around so i decide to build a computer.... i have a mac os x hard drive and a windows hard drive i was wondering if either one would allow me to have 1 internal hdd and then boot from 1 external hdd... by the way the mac os x is a SATA.

set it to external or similar.
