Acer 5750G preparing to mpcie external GPU

Recommended Posts

Hello all! Im posting this here in hope to receive some orientation or help regargind my egpu project.
 

I have my old and trusted Acer 5750G and I’m still using it everyday for work. I’m a photographer and it has worked quite well with some upgrades:

-Upgraded i5 to i7 2630qm.
-Upgraded ram, 8gb to 16 gb.
-Upgraded HD to SSD.
 

Some facts:
– I have the unlocked bios so I was able to set the mpci port as “hot pluggable” and I can also deactivate the dedicated nvidia 630m from the bios itself.
– I have bough this case [PCIe PCI-E EXP GDC External Laptop Video Card Dock / Laptop Docking Station (Mini PCI-E interface Version) ] that will arrive home in 10-15 days.
– I have ordered a wifi usb card.

I was thinking in getting a nvidia 1060 6gb and plug it to my old laptop using the mpci port. I ask for your advice and knoledge regarding this:

1- Is this a good card choice?
2- Will I face any problem with my setup or there is something important I should take into consideration?
3- Will software that uses CUDA (photoshop and premiere, for example) get reinforced with the new card?
4- How much processing power will get lost for the “small” port I will be using?

Thanks a lot again, and sorry for my english mistakes!!

      I have recently upgraded my laptop(an M6800 firepro 6100) and replaced it with an GTX 980m. Nvidia says that the latest driver(461) supports my card but i can only install up to 388.13 Ive tried to mod it but i can't figure it out. I can run the latest linux driver tho

      I have spent a little time in the past few days looking around this site. I would love for someone to point me in the right direction to a forum that has information that could help me out with my problem.
       
      I have a:
       
      Alienware M17XR3 
      Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
      Intel I7-2820QM 2.3
      Bios InsydeH20 Version 1.0 A12
      NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460M
      (4x) 4 GB Ram
      samsung 2.5" 256 SSD (SATA3.0Gbps)
       
      It has been an amazing machine for the last 10+ years. Minor issues, nothing that an Alien Respawn could not fix, till now! On battery power it works just perfect.  Then I plug it in and it's all OK until I try to do anything, and then the screen goes white. The screen sometimes goes yellow, sometimes blue, but mostly white screen. It will do nothing until I do a hard reset (holding the power button till it turns off and turn it back on) with the power unplugged.  If the power is not unplugged then it will go through boot up to windows swirling dots then go white again. If I plug it in and do nothing I can charge it, unplug and continue what i was doing. I have tried a lot of solutions bouncing around the internet, and thought I was having a DC Jack connection issue (replaced the ac/dc power adapter, then the motherboard). I get a better connection now but with the same white screen result. I stumbled into this forum and I'm hoping to find solutions to my issues.  Then upgrade like so many others have.
       
      Any ideas, comments or suggestions welcome.
       
      Thank you in advance!

      Hi everyone,
      i'm writing this post to ask you if someone is interested about making for me an overclocked gpu vbios.
      I have a Dell M6700 with a NVIDIA K3000M and i' m kinda good with it but i m searching about getting more performance from it.
      So basically i want to have a 850 Mhz OC vbios rom and a 950 Mhz OC vbios rom, is there anyone that can do this for me please ?
      I tried using kepler vbios tweaker but i remains stuck at 548.9 Mhz without going up and i can t figure how to do it.
      I'll attach my VBIOS BACKUP CLEAR COPY.
       
      PS: Tech Inferno seems to have upload problems now so if you want the rom image contact me pls asap
