This question has been asked and then answered like 20+ times by me,
twice in the last week.

Yeah very feasible many people do it including me.

Of course you need the right system you would need an eGPU capable
laptop such as the W520 which you should install an quad core ivy bridge
cpu in so you get pci-e 3.0 for the expresscard slot. As always I
recommend installing coreboot - the ivy/sandy coreboot port has open
cpu/ram init and supports me cleaner to nerf your me (again disabling is

I would probably just pick up a workstation board like the KCMA-D8
though as laptop dgpu gaming needs an external monitor if you want to do
it in a VM.

No such thing as a lifetime account FYI, eventually these services get
too top heavy and run out of money.
