I think the firewire drive would be better.  It gets the power for the disk outside of the computer.

OK - this begs the question: "How critical is the power supply to the outboard Firewire drive?  Should it too be a linear supply and not a switching since most today are supplied with small switching supplies?"

I would probably be a waste of money to improve that PS unless the AC adapter is creating conducted emissions into the AC power.  Some of them do.
