Hi,
I would like to install an eGPU on my laptop as quite frankly I'm bored of 9FPS on the witcher 2 (with ultra lowest settings across the board, playing on windowed mode with a resolution the size of a potato).
This is my laptop: http://www.toshiba.co.uk/discontinued-products/satellite-c50-a-1dv/
If you don't want to follow the link, I'll just say here that it features:
1 × HDMI-out
2 × USB 2.0
1 × USB 3.0

I don't know if it has a mPCIe slot. (I think that's what it is).
Thanks :)
PS I upgraded to 8GB or RAM, if that makes a difference although it probably won't.

This gives a lot of infor about using eGPU with laptops.

for the most part you need express card slot ( yours does not seem to have that feature from the link you provided )
to go the mini PCI-E route, the slot is generally an internal slot for wireless cards on laptops. so if you have access to the wifi card from the bottom of the laptop you should be able to access it.

You are better off selling that laptop and buying a low-mid gaming laptop for about $800 with a nVidia 960m video card in it. Will be about the same price after you sell your system as getting an external card.
