 eGPU getting attention by all these major manufacturers, it is all a lot easier. Yes, a normal computer setup is easier to get to work. But for me having one system that has modular power is the best thing ever. My desk is clean and I don't need a big PC case.

Model of my laptop: I think that is HP EliteBook 840 G3

OS: Windows 10 Home

RAM: 8GB 

CPU: i5 1035G1

GPU: Intel UHD Graphics

eGPU that I would like to connect: GTX 1060 3GB vRam

So I have question can I connect to my laptop that graphic card using USB type C (I would like to use something more like a Thuntherbolt but really I don't know what is it xD) and how much it would like to cost

@kocoman, Through the Apple Thunderbolt 3 to Thunderbolt 2 adapter, you can make it work. In macOS, you'd need a software such as Purge-Wrangler to enable the eGPU feature for TB1/TB2 Macs. Windows and Linux don't have this restriction.

@kocoman, The Apple Thunderbolt 3 to Thunderbolt 2 Adapter works in either direction. To connect it to a Thunderbolt 1/2 Mac, connect a Thunderbolt 2 Cable, then connect the adapter to that.
