External Graphics Card for Laptop Suggestions

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm selling my sig rig since I hardly use it since I picked up a Lenovo L512 and I'm not gaming nearly as much as I used to. Anyway I do still want to play some games and obviously the integrated graphics sucks for anything new. I've done a lot of searching for external graphics cards and every I've found is a few years old so I'm looking for suggestions for one that can run 1920x1080 on my TV (in sig). Ideally something that will plug into my pcmcia slot and I can upgrade the actual graphics card as needed.

edit: something like this http://mnql.com/as-an-external-video-card-laptop/

Can't you run any pci-express compatible graphics card using that setup?

Yeah but I was hoping to find something a little neater than a GPU and PSU just sitting on my desk or crammed into a mini tower. If I couldn't find something like that I was just going to buy the stuff in the link.
