Wondering if a used Sonnet eGFX Breakaway Box 350w for $100 is worth it to use with my Dell XPS 13 7390 and an old video card I have (see below).

SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 7850 DirectX 11 100355-1GOCL 1GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card OC Version

 

Let me know if I can provide any other information - thank you!

To do: Create my signature with system and expected eGPU configuration information to give context to my posts. I have no builds.

I'm new, but I want to say yes. Grab the enclosure for $100. 

If you need to upgrade for more juice, can find something like this:

Still under $150. Value-wise it makes sense unless something newer has some new crazy features or look cool.
