ASUS Transformer 3 Pro egpu setup recommendations

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

First time on this website and I thought this could be where I can find some help.

 

I've bought an ASUS transformer Pro 3 with the following specs:

 

CPU: i5 6200U (2.3 GHz turbo up to 2.8 GHz)

RAM: 8 GB

SSD: 512 GB

Price: $880 CAD (Got lucky on Amazon.. really lucky)

 

I have not heard any news about the ASUS ROG XG Station 2 being released anytime in Canada yet so I've started to look elsewhere.

The Akitio Node 3 seems ideal for me ($350+tax (free shipping)) since it  could fit full sized desktop graphics cards in there.

Question is, which one should I get? I was thinking GTX 980ti since I know I could get one for $450 but not sure which type or if there are better alternative.

I've heard I should look at the Zotac 10-series mini graphics cards but with these (and the potentially the 980ti), I don't want the system to bottle neck.

The i5 might not be powerful enough to draw the GPU's fullest potential.

I've already heard there were potential fan issues on the Transformer Pro 3 so if that's the case with my model (I hope not), I don't want it to end up overheating.

 

Please let me know which graphics card I should go for.

 

Thanks,

 

T

      Hi Guys,
       
      Im looking to possibly get a new laptop, but was wondering what laptops you guys would suggest for gaming and that doesn't have hardware whitelisting so I can update my wifi card and other hardware in the future. I heard that Asus doesn't lock down there hardware with a white list. My current laptop, Lenovo Y500 Ideapad, has a white list and im not able to swap out the wifi card because of it. Let me know what you guys think.

      Would it be remotely possible to put a newer graphics card in a G75VW?
