what if i use up to 65w power graphic card on egpu? it says i dont need 6 pin power does that mean i dont need psu brick to power the graphic card? just put it into the pcie slot and connect it to my laptop? will it work? and the card im talking about is Galaxy Nvidia GeForce GT 440 will this card works on laptop as an egpu? i want to buy more "high powered" gpu but my laptop cpu is just dual core 2.20ghz and i think this card wont bottleneck my system

If you don't place a PSU on the eGPU enclosure, from which source is the GPU getting the 65W of power the GPU needs to operate?
Without taking in consideration the power the eGPU enclosure needs to function.

This isn't a desktop port that provides 75w. Besides tb3, the others ports that can be used for egpus only supply 25w or less. It's not enough for any gpu at all let alone powering the adapter too.
