external gpu or new computer?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I currently have a MacBook Pro 13 2017 base model. 

the graphics on it are not good they are intel iris 640. I am forced to play through geforce now due to only having 128gb of storage and don't have nearly enough to download even one game! with what I have on my computer. I usually can only run games such as Fortnite on low all on 30-50 fps. im thinking about selling it in a few months for 2 reasons. 

1- I want much better performance in final cut pro

2- better performance whenever im gaming ( I would get a pc but video editing with Final Cut Pro is more important to me)

Im wondering what it be a better option for me to sell my 13 2017 base model MacBook Pro for a 2017 15 MacBook Pro with a rx 560 and or a iMac 27 with a rx 570x. 

Or I could buy more dongles and get a external gpu?

what would everyone recommend me doing. I cannot get a pc or build one as it does not have Final Cut Pro.

base model. 

Buy something proper to fit your needs.

A laptop for all that is a square peg in a round hole. Wrong tool for the job.
