Hello, I have a Dell XPS 15 9560 with an Aorus Gaming Box GTX 1080 eGPU. I run this setup with thunderbolt 3 cable just okay. I would like to squeeze a little bit more performance from my eGPU setup, therefore I am considering to use M.2 NVMe slot on my laptop for better connection with my eGPU. 

I would like to ask what do i need to complete this setup? 

- Do i need R43SG or R43SG-TU ? Whats the difference please?
- Should i buy a new PSU or i can just use 2x Dell Optiplex DA-2 serie 220W ?

Thank you kindly for help

@donwey Do you have a SATA space besides the battery in your XPS 9560? In order to use the R43SG you'd need to free up the M.2 slot.

@itsage Hi, yeah I plan to buy external SSD and boot from it, or I can buy smaller battery 56Whr and put sata drive beside it.
