Yes you can still use one of the other methods.

The Nvidia Optimus is the most seemless though it can only be used on systems with a Intel HD iGPU.

•NVIDIA Optimus driver provides a transparent internal LCD cloning mode for systems with a 4500MHD/HD/HD3000 iGPU primary video when using a NVIDIA card later than GTS4xx/GTX4xx.


•Use Lucidlogix virtu drivers to provide transparent output using the internal LCD if you have a Sandy Bridge cpu.


•Ultramon/Chung Gun method can clone from the desktop eGPU's window to the internal LCD for windowed games/apps.


•USB 3.0 framegrabbers have sufficient bandwidth to capture the image from the desktop eGPU and pipe it back to your notebook's display.

Man if you can pipe it back to the internal LCD. With USB3, they could make a external hard drive sized plug in that gives you higher end graphics power. I would totally buy one for my Lenovo x200 tablet. I mean even if it was the size of a large external hard drive, then it will still be doable in public places.

Exactly, man. If there is a way to pipe it back to the internal LCD, then i am buying this immediately, and next year going SLI GTX680, so i could have one one the go, and SLI when at home. Just thinking about it, makes my head explode.

From what i read, you need external MoBo or PSU too ? Just wondering...

You need an external 200-450W PSU depending on card your using and the adapter kit. Obviously a small 2 slot mini ATX case or similar is useful too.
