    Given the reviews and the tests on the eMMC, I am wondering whether I am better off installing things such as old games (eg Unreal Tournament, CS, etc) or even Steam for newer things on the eMMC or using an SDXC card?

    I just ordered the 128gb Surface 3 and have an unused 64gb Strontium Micro SDXC card (from another tablet which I didn't use) which says "UHS-1 card Nitro 85MB/s 566x" on the packaging. Or would it be better to use an external USB hard drive?

    Thanks!

    external USB 3.0 hard drive is the best option because it's fast and it can hold all your games

    Thanks. Would that apply even if it was a portable USB drive (i.e. the ones which draw power from the PC rather than external power)?

    I'm still not sure if I should be preferring the eMMC or the micro SD card. Any thoughts on this?

    There are software like HD speed, test your C: eMMC drive and the SD to learn which is the faster

    EDIT

    try this one:

    yes , I play my steam games through a portable USB 3.0 hard drive , get the hard drive if you think you need a lot of storage space (like 500GB)

    if you only want a small amount of storage then a fast microSD will be fine
