Using ADT-Link R43SG through Nvme M.2 port in Asus FX503VD laptop to connect Rx 5700 xt

Hello. I have the Asus FX503VD laptop with GTX 1050 as dGPU, Intel HD Graphics 630 as iGPU and Intel Core i7-7700hq processor with base freq 2.8 GHz going to 3.8 GHz with turbo boost. The BIOS version is UEFI. I want to run the rx 5700 xt as an eGPU with the ADT-Link R43SG through the nvme M.2 port. I want to use the Antec Earthwatts Gold Pro Series EA750G Pro 750W 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Semi-Modular PSU as the power supply (750W because I want to use the PSU in a desktop in the future). I have seen 5700 xt and ADT-Link R43SG being used in the build guides but not in an Asus laptop. I have also seen an Asus FX504 laptop but using EXP GDC with another graphics card. I have read the how to section about the various issues that can happen through M.2 while running eGPUs. Will the PSU that I will use (written above) support to be permanently on (is it better to connect the PSU directly to the eGPU or through the ADT board... I'm real noob at this)? Also will the Nvidia Geforce RTX 2070 super be better (I prefer rx 5700 xt due to it's lower price)? I also use a SSD in the nvme M.2 port which I will detach and use in the future. If the ssd got detected, does that mean the BIOS does not whitelist? Also do I need to buy any extra cables?
So I want to know if anyone has any prior experience similar to my case (regarding connector, graphics card and the laptop). Any advice or help will be great.
Thanks!

I think a AMD egpu has a major advantage that you don't need to uninstall the Nvidia driver. (I shared my experience in BUILDS)

And about connecting the PSU, pattern is shown in the seller's website: https://world.taobao.com/item/560189396157.htm

You can just watch the picture if you have difficulty in reading Chinese.

@swayf46180, Ok... So I can use the Nvidia GTX 1050 again after disconnecting the eGPU and restarting laptop without any problems? 
Thanks for the reply!

@rahul_barua, you are right, there's no need to take the risk re-installing Nvidia driver, if you use amd egpu. However, disconnecting egpu is difficult physically for R43SG, I think. (I use exp gdc 9.0)
