External Video Cards for Laptops

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi guys
I'd like to use my work laptop for gaming.

It's a Dell Latutude 620 with Core 2 7200 and 2 GB of Ram.

I just dont see a whole lot of External Video Cards on the market.

What would you recommend ?

thanks in advance

A whole lot or any? No Asus was working on an external GPU but it just kinda fell off I guess. Anyways here a link to read on it http://www.bit-tech.net/news/2007/01..._notebook_GPU/

I wouldn't think USB would be able to transmit the info fast enough to make it viable in gaming.

I like the sound of that... The O/Cing knob sounds a little risky... I guess they would put limits so you can't accidentally fry it.

LOL what's the point with that thing? That's wasted money. Probably targeted towards those that simply don't know any better.
