I just copied this all from CPU-Z. I am no IT specialist, just wanted to try an eGPU for my ailing laptop. this is my first time to do an eGPU. so far so good! when i was doing my research i never saw a build for my laptop.. that's why i posted my attempt here..
System specs (model inc screen size, CPU, iGPU, dGPU, operating system which eGPU is being used)
Dell Inspiron 7460
Intel Core i5 7200U
Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-7200U CPU @ 2.50GHz
Intel(R) HD Graphics 620
Windows 10 64bit
eGPU hardware (eGPU enclosure, video card, any third-party TB3 cable, any custom mods)
EXP GDC m.2 NGFF
Zotac Nvidia GeForce GTX 750 Ti
Hardware pictures (note: require 5+ posts for "attach files" button to appear. Or can link from say http://imgur.com BUT post the .jpg/.png image file rather than a link to it)
Installation steps (what did you do to get it all going?)
I just followed the usual procedure. Replace the wifi card with NGFF cable that came in with EXP GDC. Provide power using a generic PSU. Attach the GPU. Before turning on the eGPU, I did a clean up of all Nvidia drivers by using DDU. Downloaded the latest drivers for GTX 750 Ti. Then, turned off my laptop.
I turned on the eGPU first. Then followed my laptop. After I installed the downloaded Nvidia drivers, I got it all going!
Comments (eg: how has the eGPU improved your workflow or gaming)
This is my first time to do eGPU and post here! Comments are very welcome!
