As for the hard drive you could get a desktop hard drive, Take it out of the enclosure and install it in the PC then install Windows on that.

The problem with installing programs to an external hard drive is that the drive will always be unplugged meaning that Windows will not know where to find the program files when you the launch the application unless you have permanently assigned the drive a letter. You are better off doing what I said and hard drives are very cheap these days.

Its probably not the hard drive that is causing the issue. What video card have you got or don't you have one?

Well you have enough power to run it, Does it lag in all games and what other programs do you have open when gaming?

I always have skype, steam, Chrome, and sometimes Windows media player.

And yeah, ever since I put this harddrive in, I haven't been able to play anything demanding. Even League on the lowest lags pretty hard
