Umm...would you need to use an external monitor then too? I don't think you'd be able to plug it back into your laptop screen externally...



It sounds a bit fiddly but if you're willing I'm sure you could get it going, no problem!

Hello,

Yes, I think you'll need an external screen if you do so.
It is possible to use an external GPU, but it's just not worth it. It's too expensive, too much of a hassle and your other system specs (Power, RAM) need to be good enough too.

But I don't recommend using an external card at all.
