Laptop external pcie power

So I was planning on getting my brother an external pcie Dock thing for his laptop seeing as we can't afford to get him a powerful pc. I was looking through them and none of the docks actually mentioned about powering the thing without buying a power supply. He's gonna be using a gt 1030 with the thing so nothing really power intensive. Would the thing nick some power for the laptop to power the graphics card or do I need to splash out on a power supply.

External GPU enclosures have built in power supplies with power adapters that come with them. Which model were you looking at? A 1030 seems a waste for how expensive a GPU enclosure usually is.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

The 1030 is a hand me down from me. I'm upgrading to a 970 so it seems wise to give him my 1030
