Can you run games off a external hard drive with 5400rpm?

    Okay guys, most hard-drives have 7200rpm, and SSD's 10,000+rpms, but i have been shopping around for a cheap, low-storage harddrive for my Wii games and USBLoader and saw this -

    It has 5400rpm, is that fast enough to handle Wii games?

    Your HD should be much faster than your DVD. So I dont think any RPM should be good enough.

    5400rpm is more than adequate for running Wii games.
