Yeah, your system is fairly well balanced, and while it certainly could handle a moderate eGPU, the performance increase would still only be moderate at best.
I would highly recommend saving up for a real system, that way you have solid gaming performance (and price/performance ratio) and a laptop for mobility.

Generally not worth it for a few reasons.
Bulky, still requires a standalone PSU, costs a bit much, and importantly the laptop specs.
Chances are if you want to run an eGPU the laptops processor wont be up to snuff either.

I have an Asus N550JK with i7 4700HQ and Nvidia GTX850m I was hoping to beef up for modern video games vs build a desktop, but might have to go that route.

Thanks, I'll look into that. I've been out of the tech loop for a while. Pilfering through all the new stuff, checking compatibility, and not buying flashy crap that under-performs will be fun. I'm over this 30 FPS Xbox stuff.
