NEW to eGPU. Noob here!
I am new to this forum, I have some questions before I buy a GPU for my laptop.
I am using Acer TravelMate P-245-M (Core i5-4200U w/ Intel HD 4400 and 4GB RAM). According to HWiNFO64, I have a free PCI slot. Please see Photo HERE. In addition, my laptop uses a mPCIe ( I am not totally sure), because it has AR5B22 for its WLAN and Bluetooth (the chip has mPCIe).
My question is:
1. From the photo, is it really a free slot of mPCIe? If yes, will V8.0 EXP GDC Laptop External Independent Video Card Dock run?
2. I am planning to put GTX 750Ti for this. What are your comments and suggestions for this?
3. How can I know if the free slot of mPCIe is for WWAN?
Note that my budget is limited to 100 - 200 usd. I am living in the Philippines.
Thank you in advance!

If your laptop is the same one, then the wifi card looks like it would be easy to replace with an eGPU cable.
Edit: Specifically, in the first video they show taking out the battery, HDD, then what looks to be the wifi card
