Im getting a new labtop rig that would be perfect for gaming other than graphics card, any thoughts about using an external like this?

Also the graphics card i plan to use is from my desktop that is on its last leg other than graphics card. GTX-970 also have a power supply for the dock

The problem with this thing is you have to uscrew the bottom of your laptop to plug it into the wifi card spot.

It's a pain in the ass and when it's all set up you might as well be using a desktop.

I really wish people would start putting external M.2 ports on laptops for this very reason.

spotted the scifag with no concept of how captialism works. no matter how stupid or outrageous a thing is, if even just a few people want it badly enough to pay for it, someone will sell it to them

This is why we need socialism.

no we need psuedosocialism, something like the canada model that's a combo of cap and soc

We get the same thread literally every day and there's already one on the front page of /g/.

The consensus is that it's probably a waste of time and might fuck up your laptop if you're not careful, and it would just be easier to build a PC or even buy a cheap/refurbished prebuilt.

Someone needs to make an image like the iphone image for this...

Indeed.

4chan has no "front page".
4chan has a catalog and first, second, third... pages.
This is not reddit.

eGPU user here, works pretty well.

Using the EXP GDC Beast through expresscard on my T520 with a 7950.

When using AMD you pretty much need an external display, and even with nvidia I highly recommend it.
