In my current gaming computer, I don't have a working hard drive. I have an SSD that holds the OS (Win 7 64-bit), and a couple of gigs more. I have a problem with my motherboard (I think) that keeps it from recognizing hard drives.

I don't currently have the extra money to replace the motherboard.

So, I'm attempting to work around the problem for now.

I've got a 64 GB memstick.

Could I use that and play an MMO from that? I haven't been keeping up with the technology. The memstick itself is USB 3.0, but I'm pretty sure that my computer only has USB 2.0 ports. Would that need to be changed?

When I was in college I would keep a few full install games on a jump drive and it worked perfectly fine.

To my knowledge you are able to use 3.0 sticks in 2.0 ports.
Doing so just makes it run at the 2.0 speed opposed to the 3.0 speed if you had 3.0 ports.

Several friends have run games from a flash drive in the past, so I'm fairly sure it should work fine.
