the external graphics cards available for laptops is basically just a way to add a second or third viewing screen. they will not help whatsoever in games. And in order to get a solution that allows you to use that extra expresscard slot as a main graphics processor is to buy a vidock 4. it is basically PCI-e to expresscard adapter. and works for video cards that utilize up to 150 watt graphics card. but it is really pricey, about 300 dollars after taxes. here is a link if your interested. and keep in mind this doesnt come with a video card, you will still need to buy one on top of this.
