The point of my post was to avoid you wasting your money on a GPU upgrade that wouldn't give you any better performance because of the Celeron CPU holding it back (that's called a bottleneck).

Yes, you can get an external GPU box for it but it'll cost a lot more than 40 bucks (and I mean a lot more) for one that's capable of running GTA V even on low settings with your current laptop.

You'd be far better off putting that money towards a new laptop with higher specs and a discrete GPU.

Attaching an eGPU to that is simply turning a poorly performing laptop into a poorly performing desktop.
Except that you have less money in your pocket.

You can't make that into a gaming system, no matter what GPU you try to make it use.
