Hi my laptop vivobook x142DA AMD ryzen 5 3500u Vega 8, im looking to get an external gpu, but on my laptop the slot for m2 nvme is already installed by ssd, will a external nvme through usb work? If the external nvme doesn't work, I can see on google that the laptop can be installed with an egpu by removing the PCIE wireless and bluetooth card. If I remove it will I be able to surf and use bluetooth?

If you are running an external video card though the USB connection you are going to be severely limiting the bandwidth it can utilize. If you replace the wireless card you won't be able to use Bluetooth or WiFi.

If you want a laptop for gaming, much better to sell yours and get one designed for that.
