    I have my Quake, MS Flight, Wolfenstein, etc on my external USB drive. Does
    this affect performance? Can this have an impact on connection?

    Yes. USB is much slower than any IDE connection. USB 2.0 and Firewire
    are faster, but overall the absolute fastest connection is either SATA
    or IDE. This does not affect your ping and connection to the server
    other than overall system performance.
