In this video i am testing the egpu dock in my Dell Inspiron n4010 Laptop , and installing Asus ROG series Gtx 1060 Graphic card. I have chosen Rise of the Tomb Raider and FarCry Primal to test.

For better gaming experience you can use your desktop monitor or your home tv , just connect the HDMI cable in one of your graphic card port and boom. Play games in full HD resolution, i am used my LG 24″ IPS LED monitor for that and using logitech wireless keyboard and mouse to get a desktop feel.

    Is one supposed to just leave the graphics card all exposed like that? Are there any cases or any workaround to cover the card and make it portable as well?

    Hello brother, my laptop, the latitude e6430 is not on the list of tested laptops that work, but if the Dell Inspiron is on it, shouldn’t mine work. Also I have another question, my laptop doesn’t use integrated graphics because it has a dedicated graphics card inside, is the entire process any different. I have a gtx 1060 6gb that i want to use. My processor in my laptop is 2.7 Ghz, will that work.
