Will go with what I outlined in the post.

Thanks again.
The one thing that photoshop benefits from is a second hard drive, instead of it eating up all your ram, which it will do quickly, it can put some of the temporary info on your second drive which will allow photoshop to run more smoothly. If you go into Preferences and go into the plugins and scratch disc section you'll see pull downs offering options on what drives you want to use for this function. Having your C: drive as your scratch disc isn't efficient because of all the other "stuff" like your operating system on there, your scratch disc should be set to a second hard drive. I used to run one drive when I first started into PS when I went to a second drive for all the temporary info PS likes to write I noticed a dramatic improvement in performance and less slow downs in PS.

Re: Your evaluation please

When I went to Preferences I noticed that my external hard drive was listed as a possible choice.

Could this external drive be used as the "scratch" drive? Would it be wise to do so if this were possible?

But if you start photoshop another time and it's not mounted, you'll have to reselect it again.
It becomes a pain in the ass, believe me.
