My laptop is pretty good for gaming with a 1TB hard drive, 8GB of ram, and an nvdia geforce gt650m, I am able to run newer game on max with anywhere from 35 fps to 60+ fps, but my laptop gets very hot and Im worried about frying my graphics card. But I am also hoping to run future games at max settings and games like battlefield 3 and crysis 2 or 3 for longer periods of time without my laptop overheating, so I looked into vidock. Im not really sure how to work it, nor do I understand how to set it up. I may be in the wrong category, but can someone please help me?

Operating system - Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
Processor - 3rd generation Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3610QM Processor (2.3 GHz, 6MB L3 Cache)
Graphics Card - NVIDIA(R) GeForce(R) GT 650M Graphics with 1GB GDDR5 memory [HDMI, VGA]
Memory - 8GB DDR3 System Memory (2 Dimm)
Hard drive - 1TB 5400 rpm Hard Drive

My psu is only a 90W AC power adapter, but I heard with eGPU's I could use my XBOX 203w psu, which is powerful enough for either the gtx 670 or 680 or both (I'm not positive)

Could someone please explain this? I don't have a lot of knowledge about this

Honestly I dont think it would really be worth it.

You could get a laptop cooler if you like, I have this one and it works really well:

I just feel as if when a graphics card is put into a PCI-E x16 slot, its like a 16 lane highway. Now consider putting that highway through a USB port.

I just dont see the price justifying the little advantage it has.
