I found a SSD external for 33 dollars on Amazon...debating...hmmm
"Do SSD External Drives make as big of a difference for Games as Internal?"

No.

The only thing an SSD does for games is reduce the level load time.
Going through the USB interface is much slower than an internal drive.

What size/make/model is this $33 dollar thing?

Make/model/size please?

At $33, it might be OK, it might be absolute junk.
Oh the size I think was 60GB.

wish i could find it...hmm maybe the price went up so the search can't find it? I doubt its "junk" i mean 33 dollars for a 1.0 isn't THAT bad LMAO. :)

Just trying to get at the specifics.

For instance:
"I found a 1TB Samsung 860 EVO for $33. Good deal?"
No. Absolute scam.

"I found a 60GB KingScam for $33. Good deal?"
No. Absolute crap.

etc....

i totally get you, i just honestly only remember 3.0 and 60GB...and like i said i really cannot find it again

I would never buy an external ssd. Instead buy something like 860 EVO SATA and use your own external enclosure. You can do the same for NVME M2 SSD as well
