Laptop is a toaster, external GPU casing suggestions

So my laptop is a literal potato, and I wanted to upgrade it. So I want to plug a GPU into it, and use the gpu power. Examples of a device used to do tthiss are the Razer Core X chroma, but I could probably buy a new pc with that. SOo what I want is an external GPU enclosure, or some way to use a GPU's power on my laptop. Does anybody have any suggestions? Plan too play Valorannt btw.

Sorry for any grammatical/spelling errors, I am writing on kindle.
Also, sorry I didn't quote or mention you, it is impossible on kindle.
Damn, this RGB is straight bussin'.
Can I be the first kindle moderator?

Giving more information about your laptop could help us give an accurate assessment of your options. Generally, getting an external GPU is a bad idea because:

 

1. Enclosures are expensive

2. GPU's are very expensive

3. If your laptop is slow, you are probably limited by other factors too (CPU, memory etc.)

4. You probably do not have a TB port to use an external enclosure

 

Generally, you won't get your money's worth, and it's a very inelegant solution. Saving up for a better laptop or desktop PC is would be the safer choice that will give you a better experience and less regrets later on.

First of all, what's your current system? Having support for external GPUs isn't widespread, you will need Thunderbolt (gen 4) connectivity most likely.

Planning on trying StarCitizen (Highly recommended)? STAR-NR5P-CJFR is my referal link

Like some already said you need a thunderbolt port on your laptop (3 or higher), however there's anothrr way to use gpu externally but those are kinda janky and not something you can plug and play like you would with standard thunderbolt egpu enclosure
