Gaming on a Laptop using an External GPU

In this experimental video I try connecting a desktop graphics card to a laptop... the results were certainly interesting.


I've been wanting to try this out for a while, so a big thanks to BangGood for sending me the adapter (ebay link above, banggood link below).

    This was back when you were a noob and thought it was a good idea to have loud, intrusive BG music. It's a pleague on youtube, and I don't understand how it came about. Thank god it died down and is seen as amateurish and/or douchy now.

    Can we use pc motherboard as pci slot then connect laptop to the gpu via hdmi?.. Will it work?

  • Jaime Reusche

    Used this on an old Acer Aspire V3-571G with an Nvidia GTX970, worked well for one week, last night it went dead; the GPU felt hot but the fans had been running. Won't turn on again, don't know if it is the hub that was defective or the GPU, but it was not the power unit (650M Gold certified). Reached out to Nvidia and the merchant for the hub, still waiting for replies. Anyone had anything like this happen?? Thanks

    I see windows loading while game is on. Is this a fake video?

  • crazeeavery XVII

    Humm, I watched your other video turning old laptops into a media PC and I'm thinking about doing it. I wonder if I make or get a big enough case if I could use this to upgrade the gpu? Making it a light gaming rig and media server.

    I have kind of a long question. Lol. I have a Dell XPS 17-L702X laptop that has a i7-2nd gen cpu, GeForce GTX 555M gpu and 16gb of ram running windows 10 pro. It's a great machine but it's struggling with modern gaming. My question is if I do add a gpu to my motherboard via the pci-express riser card adapter, would the gigs of the gpu be added to my 3gb dedicated onboard gpu or would it be a stand alone figure? Also would the work together as one unit or will the GB of the external Gpu only be picked up by games? I would like to know because Im interested in doing one of your DIY builds turning my laptop into a desktop but I'd like to add the gpu.. Looking forward to your reply or anyone that can answer my questions. Id appreciate

  • Nasr Koba

    can i ask u a favour? will this gpu(i7 7700hq) will handle gtx 1080ti? in laptop

  • Waleed Salem

    it's good for strong CPU like i7 4th gen or higher but if your CPU is too old it's not working fine

    hello, can I still use WIFI if I remove the wifi device?

  • Ryan Chen

    Is there some way I can do this without taking apart my computer, in other words, line them up to a thunderbolt 2 or hdmi input on my computer. I want to do this so I don't need to spend 200 dollars on a graphics card box.


    His laptop was booting and he is playing games on which pc see on 2:42 his laptop was booting , is he manupulating us. Chutia bana ra hai bc

  • Red Sanic

    can i ask? what kind of power supply did you use to power up a Graphics card?


    Can I connect This graphics card to my dell vostro 2520 laptop please response

  • Ernest Fenstermaker

    Diy Perks, I think the concept of an external GPU is really cool, but as I've seen you build cases and remakes of laptops, I was wondering if it would be possible to build a mount/ new case for the laptop that included the GPU to be attached and therefore more portable. If I could throw my 8th gen intel i3 1inch thick computer in my bag with an eGPU attached to the bottom of it, I totally would. It would make gaming while travelling more accessible and minimalistic.
