Despite being a student, with a budget smaller than a list of good analogies I've come up with, overtime I've had two laptops come into my possession:
NEC Versa E6310
HP Persario CQ56-103TU
Whilst the NEC has good an 'actual' graphics card in it - the vram in it a while ago killed itself and the HP has a terrible Intel Series 4 graphics chipset in it which I can play stuff-all on.
However, recently a friend upgraded his graphics card and he's given me his older GeForce GTX 440 and now between the two laptops I'm trying to use it as an external graphics card for one of my laptops. I'm just not quite sure how (I know it can be done) or on which laptop. I'd prefer the NEC despite its age because its already essentially dead to me right now and the HP doesn't have a ExpressCard port, which I assume would be allot faster than USB2.0. The NEC has a 'TI PCIxx12 card reader' by the way. Despite looking around the internet and forums like this, I've still got no clue as to where to start. I can also use a soldering iron (he says in a modding forum), so I don't really want to have to buy any pre-made products.
Any help with be appreciate, thanks!
