Did you read the specs on the Akitio external dock about what size video cards it can hold? It's a bit over 9" long total, a GTX 1080 is about 10"-11" long. Tough to fit a 10" card in a 9" case.

You also say "up gradable" and then want to sell it in 4 months, which contradicts itself, why upgrade a system if you are selling it in 4 months?

If you want to use the system for 4k gaming, a laptop with a 1070 card is just about minimum you'd need, but will do well for VR.
