    I have gaming desktop as is but i was looking to upgrade the graphics for gaming on the go as gaming laptops are ridiculous prices . Is their any external way of uprgrading graphics you know of ?
  3. There is the ViDock, but at $200 to $280 plus the cost of the graphics card, it's an expensive option.

  4. For about the same price it costs to buy a gaming laptop yes you can add external VGAs.

    So for only $800 http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/pci-express-graphics-thunderbolt,3263-2.html yes, yes you can.

    Express card provides a SINGLE pcie 1.0 lane of bandwidth. pcie 2.0 if your lucky. It doesn't have the bandwidth to handle a decent GPU. Thunderbolt is needed.

    AND you said you were looking for gaming on the go. You are going to haul around a big GPU box AND a monitor to plug it into? You can't use your laptop display, it has no input from the external GPU
