Hi Karl:

After a lot of searching, I found this very detailed discussion on using an external SSD via Firewire 800. Lots of tech stuff and charts that I didn't wade through, but it generally said an external SSD would help a lot:

I do think my old iMac has slowed a bit with use and does need to be cleaned up, beyond Disk Utility. Defraging is not generally needed (so I read) not he current OS systems. I would be interested in GS thoughts on this. I think that once the file is loaded onto the SSD drive where the OS and Archicad reside, things can move quickly. I have yet to do detailed renders on the SSD, so maybe the read and write speed back and forth to the main CPU is not as much of a factor.
