Calling All Techies who enjoy a Challenge!


I have an Intel HD Graphics 3000 card which is no longer getting driver updates for Windows 10!


First, I am using a Dell Latitude Laptop and the Graphics Card is soldered onto the motherboard so swapping the GPU is not an option.


Secondly, I am a broke college student looking for a temporary Band-Aid on my computer to get me through my last semester of Engineering College using 3D programs.


Rules: Buying another computer is not an option and is the easy way out.



After doing days of research, I've come up with this setup...

ExpressCard Adapter: (1) V8.0 EXP GDC Beast Laptop External Independent Video Card Dock
Cost: $52.99
Graphics Card: (1) ASUS NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti GDDR5 2GB PCI Express 3.0 128-bit Graphics Card (GTX750TI-OC-2GD5)
Cost: $109.99
Power Supply: (1) EVGA 500 W1, 80+ WHITE 500W, 3 Year Warranty, Power Supply 100-W1-0500KR
Cost: $35.97

Total Cost: $198.96

I understand it will Bottleneck the bandwidth and it is a backwards way of doing things, but my question for you is:

Will this Setup Run/Work?

Here are the three links to each for more specs on each piece

​Thank you for your time, ahead of time!

:welcome:   tmoll217,


Would not recommend that PSU as it is from the EVGA budget range, Corsair CX 500 bronze here would be better.


I am using a Dell Latitude Laptop 



Have you got the particular model number of the Inspiron so that we can check the specs.

Our devise doesn't show good compatibility with windows 10, we do not suggest using EXP GDC over windwos 10.
Please wait for the next generation.
Thanks for your support
