Hello Everyone,

its my first thread here in this forum, and i need your help for the right choice. i'm about to setup my eGPU project, i have Dell Latitude e6420 and these are my pc specs Core i5-2540M & 4GB in Ram (i'll upgrade it to 8GB) this laptop comes with 2 wifi minipcie ports and one ExpressCard/54 ( 1.0 ) port. and one intergrated Intel hd graphics 3000.

That's what I've bought so far :

GPU : MSI GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Aero ITX 4GB
Power Supply : HP ps-6361-4hf - 365Watt . and it comes with ( 1-24-Pin ATX, 4-SATA, 3-Molex, 1-4 Pin ATX +12V Power, 1- Floppy Drive Connector )

And now i'm confused with the Exp Gdc Beast adapter, which one should i go for, mPCIe or Expression version ? which one of them gives the best performance and speed for the GPU ? bytheway i know that i won't get the same performance as a Desktop Gpu but anyway i need to choose best option between these two options.

Thanks in advance.

Expresscard is more convenient, but using an EXP GDC has had reports of glitchy Gen2 performance plus poor EMI insulation. Seemingly unaffected by these issues and at a considerably less expensive pricepoint is the US$7 mPCIe eGPU adapter. Perhaps worth a try?
