Any motherboard for a Windows Egpu set-up?



well, title says it all: is there any motherboard for a Windows egpu set-up (you could recommend)?

Intel (preferably) but AMD is OK too.

I'll build a fairly SFF PC and wish to have the GPU out of the case.

No worry about gaming performance, I'll only use the GPU to accelerate my NLE rendering time.

Apart from that, PC will be used for basic every day tasks, plus some HTML/CSS development, and high GPU power wouldn't be required.

What editing software?

What budget for the whole PC?

There's basically no point to an external GPU for that kind of set up because you can just get an ITX case that will fit everything in less space than a PC + External GPU Box.

As well you can just use a PCI-e riser cable if you really need to split it up.

I edit my posts a lot, Twitter is @LordStreetguru just don't ask PC questions there mostly...



What is your budget/country for your new PC?


what monitor resolution/refresh rate?


What games or other software do you need to run?

This is a thing I've asked myself many times: can you get an external PCI enclosure, mount a graphic card in it, and plug the whole stuff to your motherboard through a PCI extension cable?


I used to use ProTools back in the days, and I had an external PCI chassis to accommodate the extension cards.


I'm wondering if something like this also works for graphic cards.
