Hello! I've been wondering if an external SSD would be good enough for games on my PC. Currently, I have an internal HDD that runs at about 120-140 Mbps read/write. Online, I found an HP P700 external solid-state that states it can run at 1,000 Mbps read/write. Should I get it, or will there be limitations due to it being USB 3.1?

It is not 1000Mb/s it is 1000MB/s.
Is your usb port gen 1 or 2?
