I'm planning getting an External HDD with USB2 and Firewire , can you tell if it's possible to play games loaded onto the external drive or are they used purely for backup. OS WXPpro SP2.

Yes you can play games from an external drive.

However it is best not to load games requiring fast response times onto the external drive . due to lower read write speed through firewire / USB2
