I was just wanting to buy an external harddrive to back up my important files on my PC. I've decided this because recently I basically lost everything and was unable to recover most of my files.

Anyway, I wanted to get a 500GB HD to use as an external HD, and I was wondering whether I can just buy a 500GB HD and a 3.5" External HD Case (separately) and put them together and start using the HD straight away.

i.e. Will I have to quick format the drive if I want to use the HD in an comupter or will it be a simpe "plug & play" solution?

Also, will the speed of data transfer be slow through USB?

Thank you,
