Hey guys,
I got my g55vw a couple of years ago, I got it with the Gtx 660m. I was pleased with the performance for the last two years, but now with new games coming out like Far Cry 4 and AC Unity, I really feel like I should upgrade.
I saw this video on YouTube, where the guy use an external
PCI-E adapter with a mini PCI-E port on his laptop to connect an external desktop class gpu:

I think the idea is awesome and I was wondering if there is any way that I could do it too, but without disable my wireless card and in a more convenient way. Maybe if I'll sacrifice my Dvd-ROM I could arrange another easy to access mini PCI-E port on the side of my laptop? Will the motherboard and the inside build of the laptop allow that?

Any information would be great guys..
Thanks in advance.

Here's a great solution for using a desk top GPU if you have a Thunderbolt port. (Link below)

Thank you so much for the response.
Unfortunately, I don't have a Thunderbolt port on my laptop..
Any other suggestions?

Okay, sorry you didn't buy the model with the Thunderbolt port, that would have been a great option for you.
Sorry I did a search, but not luck.
I seen some options for NBs with a PCIE slot.
