So i have recently been looking in to computers and i want to build my own, but it wont be for a while as we are pretty low on funds for anything. I just came across the idea that it would be cheaper to upgrade my laptop since my laptop is really good but my graphics card is completely trash. The graphics card is an Intel Hd graphics family and has 112 MB of vram...ik..its shit.

Here is a screenshot to everything you may need to know about the graphics card

I currently get about 25-30 frames on csgo and that is the main reason i want to upgrade. Gaming purposes.

Im sure he meant aren't.
You can't really add a GPU to a laptop
The GPU you are seeing is the one integrated with your CPU

If i get a gtx 1060 and an external graphics card adapter would everything be okay?

No it wouldn't work mate. To be honest you can't really upgrade much in a Laptop if I'm mistaken.

I already told you, Laptop CPU and GPU are NOT meant to be upgraded. So the answer is no.
