Man, when i read that i jumped for joy, asus is gonna release an external box that plugs into a cardbus slot on a laptop. You can put any pcie16 card in there, Im thinking ill use my current card for the external box, so i can play games on my dell core duo laptop

Has to be a single slot card.

What card do you currently have?

I believe also that the box comes with an nvidia 7950gs.

Not too excited. I would like to see its price once it hits the streets.

Also, remember that games dont only require gpu power but cpu power also! so doesnt matter if you have a 7900gs in your laptop, if it is pentium M 1.66ghz, dont even think about expectacular gaming.

maby if you are running a Core 2 duo 1.66Ghz with a 7900GS there should be no bottleneck.

I want an external video card for desktops with its own PSU so I don't have to upgrade my power supply everytime I change video cards.

I think Asus has one already, but haven't heard about an 8800 external.

That would cut down on heat in the case as well since airflow would be less restricted.
