I have a laptop which is sufficient to play most games, except for one caveat: the graphics card. It's a GeForce 610M. I would be able to play most games on decent settings if I had a better graphics card, and I was wondering if it would be possible to buy some other nVidia graphics card, get a PCI-e (or PCI, I'm not sure which I'd need yet) to USB adapter and use the graphics card as a peripheral? It would massively improve my gaming experience.

Thanks!

Not sure it would even work but if it did the USB bus doesn't have enough bandwidth it would bottleneck the card to the point of being worthless for gaming.

Just as a theory, if I ran it through 2 USB ports would that help?

Also, does dGPU mean discrete GPU?
