Question Laptop grahips card.

Are there any Radeon, or NVidea graphics cards that you could hook up 2 a laptop out side of the computer, instead of inside it? Becuase I cant upgrade my laptops graphics card.

Doesn't that card only split it into multi-monitors?

yea you have two monitors the external one and the laptop one, when you want to play a game you can have it set up for two displays, so you would use to the second one to play games, it will probaly be crappy but better than ur intergrated.
