Should I sell the eGPU enclosure later on then or just keep it afterwards in case I need it in the future?


I'd keep it. Doesn't hurt having it and you can always sell it later.

Quote me to see my reply!

£150-200 does seem a lot like for just a short term one off thing though.

Yeah buy an eGPU enclosure but don't sell it after your after wards because It'll obviously won't be your last vacation where you want to take your Notebook with you to play Games like GTA. And even if you'll never ever take your eGPU with you again on a trip you can still use it at home or where ever else.

I do also know that GeForce Now could be a potential option but that would mean sacrificing my morals and ethics and in addition to that I don't know if the internet speed will be good enough to support it or not.
