 I have FULLY upgraded my laptop last week and this is my full new setup!

also got myself a psu for the egpu, i had lot's of issues with drivers stopping (tdr + nvlddmkm.sys bsod + error 43) ,crashes which seem all to have come from the dell da2 220w adapter! Getting a psu fixed those issues and my setup is stable ever since! no crashes 

I can run this all from stock without even needing eGPU setup 1.35 but then my internal screen runs at very low fps because it will render from the intel hd, when i use pci compaction from setup 1.35 i get also decent performance out of my internal screen (gta 5 maxed runs at 66 fps on tv and 38 fps on internal screen) Don't need to change tolud, have a modded bios but it's all running stock. just using setup 1.35 for the reason given above.




My asus n73sv is now running:

CPU: 2760qm 2.4-3.5ghz i7

RAM: 16gb Hyperx 2133mhz ddr3L

GPU: Intel hd 3000 1.3ghz + gt 540m + msi gtx 970 oc

PSU: Coolermaster B400 v2 400w just for the exp gdc 8.4b

SSD: samsung 850 evo 250gb

@ Junior_ituano please creat a new implementation guide for your Alienware system using a NGFF M-key EXP GDC. Incidentally, a US$8  eGPU adapter could have been used instead: https://egpu.io/forums/expresscard-mpcie-m-2-adapters/us7-50-generic-mpcie-egpu-adapter/
