I recently bought an Acer Aspire 5.
I want to ask if I can upgrade my GPU.
If not, can I buy an eGPU? It has a thunderbolt 3 connection and don’t know if there are anymore requirements for it.

In general you either can't upgrade the graphics on a laptop (especially cheap ones) or it's difficult.

This article explains how much of a hit you take using Thunderbolt versus PCIe.
