Does anybody know if external graphics have made any leaps forward recently or is it still a dead market?
I have a laptop with a 9600gt in it which is ok but for Arma 2 and the like I am after a box that just plugs into my express-card slot and inside I can put whatever graphics card I want (which will be a Nvidia 295gtx ). This seems totally do-able yet no-one seems to do it.
Are there any products out there like this (or on the horizon?)

The main limitation to this technology is the PC ExpressCard slot. It's bandwidth is limited to PCI-Ex1. Read through this article and see what happens when bandwidth is cut from x16 to x1.
The processor is not too shabby actually its a 2.8ghz Core 2 Duo.
Not i7 territory but powerful enough to use a good deal of the 295's grunt.
