    I've read lot of page in this thread but I'm always lost
    My laptop is an DELL Latitude E5500 with:
    C2D P8500 @ 2.4ghz
    2go RAM @ 667Mhz
    GMA4500mhd
    Acer 22" 1920x1080
    two mPCIe bus 1x 1.0 (p1 and p2)
    Windows 7 ultimate 32bits

    I want a external graphics card because I'm a "serious" gamer (Borderlands, Crysis, Blur, Split second, etc...) and my GMA4500mhd is very bad for this.
    So I've buy an XFX HD5850 and OCZ 500watts (40$) PSU and I go to make an external graphics solution (EGS, for the licence) with this componant.
    But before buy the PE4H and the PM3N, I have lot of question !


    1: Apparently I can make a 2x 1.0 mPCIe bus, but I'm lost, waht is best and easly solution ?
    2: In 2x mode, how many PM3N will plug ?
    3: Does must use DIY ViDock Setup v1.x or an other solution for create 2x bus ?
    4: Who can me explain step per step how to create 2x bus ? (I don't really know the tutorial..)


    Thanks guys !
    Not the answer your looking for mate but you might want to consider also adding a couple 2GBx2 SODIMM sticks in lappy...Oh but wait you said you had x86 system, so I suppose you're maxed out already, eh?

It is best to ask Nando4 regarding the DIY Vidock set up as he is the expert on that part.
    Yes I'm sure, I tested with an mPCIe wireless card


    @PanzerHauptmann: I can't buy 2go sodimm because it's over my budget Hum, I' dont understand, were I'm maxed out ?

    @omega91. then i would suggest you do an x2 with a nvidia card. The optimus technology would give you great fps boost

    As far as I understand 32 bit mobo is only capable of handling 2 GB of RAM. 64-bit MOBO is 8+

    @Omega91 nope. The speeds for the converter reduces the bandwidth to usb size. You will get a lot of performance lose.

    @donis,

    People have found that the gtx 4xx series works best with DIY Vidock. The most popular on this forum is the 460 due to its high performance at a reasonable cost.

    Yes, the gtx 460 has a mini-hdmi output
