Need some advice

261 6
I have this 2TB External Fantom Green Drive http://www.fantomdrives.com/products/greendrive.htm it has one of these: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822152202

and currently I'm building a new computer that will mostly be used for gaming.

this is the motherboard I'll be using: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128494

I was wondering if it is wise to convert the external hard drive internal and buy a SSD for OS and a few selected games.

It would be either I do as mentioned above or buy a new http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822136533

* budget for an SSD would be @ ~100 bucks

Thanks in advanced for any help provided.

WD Black is going to be way faster than a 5400RPM last-gen drive. (F4 2TB is the newest 5400RPM 2TB drive that Samsung produced.)

I don't like running an OS or games off "Green" drives. But if it increases what you can spend on your SSD... I suppose it's an option.

C300/M4 or any Intel SSDs are great. Also, now that most of the firmware issues are worked out, Sandforce SSDs (OCZ, Corsair, Mushkin, etc.) are another option.
