Will a flash drive work for ssd storage

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My next build will be using a ssd boot drive. I have all of my music and pics on a external hd (soon to be replaced by a nas server). I would like to put money into the nas drives and use something like this flash drive for the rigs storage. Would this work for program downloads, web bookmarks, word/school/pdf files, and a handfull of background pics? I wont be doing any large file transfers or movie downloads to or from the flash. Later down the line I will get a disk drive.

Should I use the ssd how to sticky to set this up.
