I bought a BEAST V8.44 EXP GDC used on a forum and I did a preliminary test with a geforce 7300 gt. Windows 10 recognized the card and also GPU-Z but it did not work and the GTX950m no longer worked. I got this by removing the wifi card and connecting the BEAST.

With the UEFI of the motherboard I can not disable the 950m. I saw that you sell a software, with that work?
Thanks for the answers.

Hi

 I have a lenovo z50-70 with i7 4510U, I’m considering buying a GTX 1050 and connecting it using an EXP GDC Beast ngff model and I’m going to use it on the internal display.

How much performance hit can I expect?

I am pretty new to this mPCIe stuff, so please forgive my ignorant.
So, I have radeon r9 390x gpu. I will be trying to connect it to my Asus A55V laptop through external pcie I found on Amazon

However, I saw the gpu requirement on one of the picture display. It seems like my gpu has higher bandwidth than recommended. I am wondering if can I still use this method to play games? Let's say if those games can be played with older gpu that falls in their recommended area for using exteral pcie. 
Also, with this setting, can I mine cryptocurrency? I saw many people use converter to convert 16x to 1x on their desktop, so I assume I won't need a lot of communication between gpu and my computer?

I have a Dell Latitude E5440 and am looking to get a eGPU as the Intel HD sh*t isnt enough. I am looking to use ExpressCard as I don't want to change the body of the laptop itself. I'm looking to use this eGPU from Amazon with this cable and a GT 1030/GTX 1050. I just want to make sure this will all be compatible.

My Laptop Specs:
Core i5-4310U
8 GB RAM
128 GB Samsung 830 SSD

Thanks!

Hello, I am new member of this community. I have to say that I am really positively surprised with you and grateful for all the materials I already found here.
I came here because I want to connect Intel NUC with eGPU.

I am interested in two NUC variants:

Intel® NUC Kit NUC7i5DNHE

It has these two M.2 slots:  
M.2 Card Slot (wireless)  22x30 (key E) slot (PCIe x1) 
M.2 Card Slot (storage)  22x80 (key M) slot (PCIe x4) 
 
Intel® NUC Kit NUC7i7BNH
GPU could be connected using the Thunderbolt connector, and the other option is connecting it with the M.2 slot.  

I understood that eGPU could be connected to M.2 key E with some kind of adapter, but I haven't find any adapters or configurations running it.
I want to check it here. Can I do it with this M.2 enclosure link ?

Is it possible to connect it to the other M.2 slot with initial storage purpose? (I've seen this build configuration with some other NUC versions, just want to check it with these two.)

I have a question about that error 43 with Nvidia 10xx cards. Is there a problem with Linux OS also? I saw some fix on the forum, but I'm not sure if I should still be bothered with it?

Hey,

I am completely new to EGPUs and needed a bit of help with some compatibility.  I am trying to find an EGPU for my Dell Latitude E6430 (specs down below).  There is a desktop GPU converter on amazon known as the EXP GDC, which can connect to my laptop via express card.  After I get this connected, I need a desktop GPU and I found a GTX 1050 on walmart (link down below for exact card).  Will this card work with the EXP GDC and will it work with the internal screen of the laptop? I do not want to have to plug in an external monitor to edit video as my desk is too small for a full sized laptop, monitor and keyboard.  I also listed 2 GPUs, so if the first one is not compatible, what about the second one?

Here are the specs of my PC:
Core I7 processor @3.00 MHz x64 bit
8.00 gb RAM
Intel HD 4000 graphics
Windows 7 pro 64 bit

Amazon link for EXP GDC:
https://www.amazon.com/XCSOURCE-External-Independent-Expresscard-AC773/dp/B0725B6L99/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1524459471&sr=8-1&keywords=expgdc

GPU from Walmart I was talking about:
https://www.walmart.com/ip/MSI-GeForce-GTX-1050-2G-OC-Graphics-Card/119512225

Back up GPU (this is for if the first one does not work

https://www.walmart.com/ip/GTX-1050-2GT-OC/131337268

Thank you so much for all the help!
