the power supplied by one usb2 port is marginal. be prepared to use/lose two ports to enable an external hard drive. your board has six external, so this shouldn't be a problem:

If you want a good external hard drive, don't buy a western digital hard drive. Western digital doesn't make good hard drives and they can break easily if they aren't used correctly.Source(s): went through 2 western digital hard drives that broke
