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

Nvidia 940MX

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!

 

Benchmarks (Include a CUDA-Z or AIDA64 bandwidth pic. Optional: Valley, 3dmark, noting if it's on internal/external LCD )

 

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!
