    So my laptop is in my signature, the asus.

    I found this - https://www.aliexpress.com/item/328...11ce40a64191b1cca7c7785cbfe3&tmLog=new_Detail

    I'm very very hesitant. For one, would it be compatable? Will it work with any graphics card? What about drivers? Can I have 2 drivers installed? Will I have to remove the old ati drivers I have (which is the latest)?

    I plan to get a new computer soon but probably in fall. In the mean time, if this can give me some boost to my fps on a few games, It may be worth trying.

    Anyone ever tried this? There is also a video on that site. Please watch.

    software wise? yea it should work.

    more so the issue is do you have the ports to accomodate it, such as PCIE, M.2 Pcie etc.

    You might get away with putting it in the wifi card slot.

    Yes, that is the slot I'm going to use. The wifi slot.

    Why not just replace or upgrade the GPU?
