Okay, so I hardly game as it is and when I do its very basic games like CS:GO, MW2 (and other older COD's), TF2 and just simple games. My laptop which I use stuggles to play them at above 30fps & I don't really wanna spend a ton of money on a complete build.

Something I have come across is buying a GPU and an external adapter like this [ Register or Signin to view external links. ]

However, I'm a little confused as to if it would work. How does the card connect to my laptop? I can't seem to get a proper answer & should I bother with this to whack a GTX 670 or any other cheap but good GPU in it.

Thanks

Theoretically it will work IF your laptop supports it. But it is not recommended it has been proven even thunderbolt and usb C connections don't help. They don't get full potential PCIe bandwidth and speeds. It won't help a bit, and you need a PSU with the connections to even get it to work so :/

Don't even bother mate. You'd need a PSU along with it.
