Wanting to try and see if I can get an external graphics  card working on this laptop. Let me know what you guys think.  There is a spare mPcie port, so I'm  hoping it'll be pretty simple. The laptop itself, although outdated, has served me well and I  play newer games on the lowest possible settings (sometimes with graphic reducing mods) at 800x600 resolution, but I'm wanting to push out the pixels in my game and make it so I can  run full  screen.

12GB ram (So not really sort there)
Processor is pretty trashy, but I'm hoping it'll be able to work. When I've tried certain games it's only ever the GPU that's maxed, so I'm  hoping this could help.

What I'm looking for...
(If  this will work on this particular machine)
What power  source  should I buy (already have an external adapter thingy in the post)
Which kind  of  graphics  card  would work best (cheapest, not looking  for anything beautiful, just a slight improvement will do).

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