Do you know any good Laptops for 500 that allow me to connect my GPU through PCIe and still have Wireless Wifi?

 

quite rare for that price. usually the wifi uses the only pcie slot available.

Ok so I have my old laptop a Dell Studio 1749, Specs:

 

i3 330m 2x Core, 4x Thread, 2.13GHz CPU.

6GB  DDR3L RAM

1TB SSHD

Connected Display: 1920 x 1200

ATI Mobility HD 5650 GPU. 

 

When Upgrading:

 

i7 640m, 2x core, 4x thread, 2.80GHz CPU.

8GB DDR3L RAM.

 

I wanted to see what Graphics cards were good for gaming and also my computer, I have 2 Mini PCIe Slots and I'm hoping to make modifications to my laptop case.

 

Will these GPUs be bottlenecked and are they good for games like Fortnite and CSGO.

 

Wanted CSGO Setting:

 

Resolution: 1920 x 1200

Shading Global: Medium

Textures: High

Effect: Medium

Shading: High

Anti-Aliasing: 4x MSAA

 

GPUs I found: 

 

AMD: 

 

R9 270X

R7 250X

GTX 750 Ti

GTX 970 Ti

GTX 1060

 

Any GPU that can get me these settings at 60FPS+.

extreme bottleneck. that is a very old cpu. csgo relies more on cpu than the gpu. get a new laptop

I can't :( I'm just trying to keep it alive. 

 

i understand. but if you really want better performance on csgo, you *need* a better cpu. upgrading your gpu will do very little. i still ocasionally use a 12 year old laptop... i feel ya

You are upgrading an i3 notebook with an i7?. You will have thermal issues. Your CPU will cook, and thermal throttle the living hell. Not recommended at all.

Also 970 Ti does not exist, i'm hoping its just a typo, if its not, then be careful it may be a scam.

 

Lastly: how much is all this upgrade going to cost you?, you are probably in range of buying used budget PC that can play those games. On lowest possible settings, but at least you will be able to play them.
