I have a dell xps 15 that i use for coding but if I want to play AAA games at high settings if i use a egpu with prob a 1080 would it work or would the cpu cooling in a thin and light like the xps bottleneck it? (XPS 15 9570 with i7 8750 and 1050ti)

Instead of spending $4-500 on a GPU and another couple hundred on a box, you could just build a desktop...

I have an XPS15 and use aa EVGA 1080 in an Akitio Thunder3 and it's not bottlenecked any more than it is by the TB3 bus. The same card in my desktop and I see maybe a 20% hit on perf with similar CPU and using an AIO cooler. It's an expensive solution if you don't have the 1080 yet, but if you do; I've seen the Thunder3 box on sale from time to time for $200.
