I wouldn't buy this for gaming. Its designed to be a backup and file storage drive.

For gaming I would get a 7200rpm drive with a dedicated power supply (desktop drive not portable). Can you use this for gaming? Sure. Will it be slow? Yes.

If you intend to shuck, this is the drive inside:

And here is a redditor on his experience and instructions for shucking the updated case design:

Thanks for posting this, in 4 1!

As an aside, the USB thumbdrive filler linked is USB 2.0. If a couple of extra bucks is not going to break your wallet, there's a USB 3.0 version [staples.com] of the NXT Technologies as well. I personally went with this Lexar [staples.com] filler for $9. Figured if I'm going to get it and potentially use it, it should be as decent as can be for minimal increase in price. Seems like a small price to pay to go from 2.0 to 3.0.

I bought this for "storing games". Will be transferred back and forth. I couldn't see a speed difference can you let me know speed difference ballpark. I was ignorant thinking usb 3.0 would be the limitation.

My understanding is these types of drives have a really slow write speed but do fine in read speed (aka game loading?)
