This is my first post, but basically I bought a new HP laptop and its great but i cant play the games i want to play e.g Arma 2 ( which i can actually play but on stupidy low graphics settings and the FPS is rubbish so it's not worth playing. But i was wondering if anyone could tell me about exernal graphics cards.
These are my questions:
1) would I be able to plug an external graphics card into my laptop?
2) would there be any external graphic cards that would let me be able to play games like Crysis 2 or Arma 2?
3) How much would a good external graphics card cost that would be able to meet my requirements.
It would be great if someone would help me cheers
