If I install a game onto an external drive, will there be any lowered performance issues via playing it on the internal drive? I want to do it, but I would think there would be lag or something.

The only real performance issue you'd see is in loading the game up and loading the levels. Once in-game the performance should be smooth, except for games with bad engines like HL2 where they load stuff on-the-fly (sounds in this case) which may cause a bit of FPS drop. I've played a lot of my games off my external drive and haven't had any real issues, go for it.
