I have a lenovo G570 Model-20079 and it has a pci express sloth.

I will sacrifice the Wireless card is connected to it.I am willing to take it out and use a [Mini PCI-E Version] V8.0 EXP GDC Laptop External Independent Video Card Dock to connect a Graphics card to the pci slot.

I want to connect a high end Graphics card to play new games like Battlefield 1.

If your goal is to play high-end games, this isn't worth the effort; the Pentium B940 is an entry-level CPU from 2011 and will struggle to run AAA games at all. You're also limited by the RAM.

Thanks DSzymborski for the answer,

I can upgrade the processor to i5-2450M as there are other models of G570 with this processor and ram can be upgraded to 8Gbs.

But, will I able to use the m pci to connect any Graphics card.
No one has tried to to do that with lenovo G570.
While other Lenovo G series like G480 and G580 do support a Graphics card in m pci via the dock.[https://www.banggood.com/Mini-PCI-E-Version-V8_0-EXP-GDC-Beast-Laptop-External-Independent-Video-Card-Dock-p-1011222.html?utm_campaign=12991202_1011222&utm_content=2791&p=QZ080112991202201708&cur_warehouse=USA]
