Hi guys,

 

Can you refer me to someone who were successful building eGPU using express card? While most of the topics here are eGPU set up for Macs.

 

Thank you!

Hello

Hoping someone can please help - it seems you need to be very tech savy to understand everything!

I recently installed Microsoft Flight Simulator on my HP PC (6 months old, Intel i5 processor, 10th Gen with 8GB RAM). Unfortunately the graphics are awful, and the screen regularly flashes black. I've been advised to purchase an EGPU - could someone please advise on a suitable entry level option, which comes complete with graphic card and is easy to set up ideally to a USB-C port. I'm struggling to understand all the options / technical discussions, so would very much appreciate some support! 

Many thanks,

David

They do not want (and in some cases are not technically knowledgeable enough) to bite into the topic, or spend a long time hacking something to work, or risk money on something that might or might not work. Being a pioneer is great: Without people like you we would not be halfway where we are today,And if it does require the 2nd monitor and I ran premiere on my iMac with my EGPU connected, and if I drag my premiere window onto the main imac display, will premiere still take advantage of the eGPU. Thanks in advance. https://mcdvoicesurvey.onl   https://mybk-experience.onl

@david123, hi David. I'm afraid you can't plug an eGPU into a USB C port.

If you have a full PC tower your best option is prob a graphics card that doesn't require a 6 pin power cable and instal it in a spare PCIe slot inside your PC.

My Clevo P750-DM GPU (GTX 980 mxm) died and I'm thinking of getting an eGPU instead of replacing the GPU, as replacement parts are really expensive in my country. Will it be possible to do it? I'm getting green lines all over the screen when i switched it and can't even get into windows. But, I can at least get into BIOS (if that helps?).
