I have an Hp 530 business notebook with Intel core 2 duo and windows xp 32 bit system. I was wondering if it is possible to get an external grafics for this laptop to enhance the gaming experience?

External solutions are currently few and expensive so replacing the laptop with one with a better GPU is more cost effective.

+1 to rolli, but if you have your reasons to not buy a new laptop, the only solution is a diy setup since you would have to use mpcie. Psu (50), graphics card (150), adapter (90) you're looking at $290, maybe $50 less if you get a cheaper gpu. You will need an external monitor to hook up to and expect only 25% of the actual graphical performance out of the graphics card because of the bandwidth bottleneck from mpcie which is a x1 pcie. You will also lose wireless because you have to unplug your wireless card which is currently in the mpcie. And forget mobility, psus are pretty big.
