1)Is there much difference in performance between an internal 16x DVD writer and 16x External DVD writer (attached via USB to PC)? because i already own external dvd writer and do not wish to have internal one on the new computer i wish to buy.

None that mortals would notice.

As Gandalf has said you'd never notice any difference providing the external drive is connected by USB 2.0 of course. All new computers come with USB 2.0 as standard or should, to be 100% sure I would check that the USB on the new computer is USB 2.0 and not USB 1.1. I'm almost certain you will find its USB 2.0 but its best to check just in case.
