Question about internal mechanical hard drive VS external SSD!

  1. I have been searching the internet high and low and I can not find an answer. I need to know should I run Linux and Minecraft on a 64mb cache 7200 SATA 3 mechanical hard drive or should I run it on my external Samsung T5 USB 3.1 hard drive. Here is a link to the Samsung T5 https://www.amazon.com/Samsung-T5-Portable-SSD-MU-PA1T0B/dp/B073GZBT36?th=1

    P.S. I am going to wipe windows off the computer and run it headless and load Ubuntu 18.04.2 server and Minecraft are going to be the only thing installed on the computer.
     
  2. Generally people will recommend ssds over hdds, but they’re also usually dealing with the slowest of the slow ovh hdds. I think your hdd would be fine for the task, but if your ssd has no other uses, and none in the near future, you might aswell use it for that little bit of extra speed.
