Hi guys, I have an AMD Radeon R9 290 4gb card that I'd like to use for my laptop. I'd like to spend as little money as possible for an eGPU dock. The card is coming from my deceased desktop, so I can use the PSU out of that if needed. My laptop is a Lenovo Thinkpad T480 with 2 lane thunderbolt

Your best and affordable Thunderbolt 3 eGPU option atm is the Sonnet Breakaway 350 at $199. It's possible piece a TB3 enclosure together with your existing PSU, but I don't think it's worth it. The Thunderbolt 3 mainboards are expensive (over $100 used).
