i have done a little more research and im gonna use expresscard. its not a 2.0  and im wondering if i should go with a chea[er card since its limited by bandwidth anyway or if a newer card will help  enough to be justified. and any reccomendations on using either gdc beast or a pe4c? thanks

According to Dell Latitude E6420 Manual:

It's not worth it for gaming. There is not a faster enough interface you could use on those laptops that wouldn't severely bottleneck a gaming gpu. Most mini pci-e and express port slots only run at 1x speeds. The only reason I could see for an egpu setup like what you have is wanting to run a bunch of external monitors.
