Rigging an External Video Card

  1. Alright, I'm sure there will be much scoffing at this, but I'm looking for some constructive input on at least what would be involved in rigging up an external video card (AGP) so that I can up my Dell Inspiron 9100's graphics without paying an arm and a leg to Devilish Dell. I'm no comp-sci or electrical engineering major, but it would seem like all you'd need is:

    A port to hook the external card into, some sort of cable that would run to the internal port, and something to mount the external card in, to protect it from sprayed Mountain Dew and other, less mentionable things.

    I know that that is probably simplistic, but that's why I'm here asking.

    Didn't that thing come with a Mobility 9700? As far as an external AGP card I don't think it's gonna happen... ever.

    Aye, it did, but I'm greedy for a 256 meg card. :)

    I would still have to think that it must be possible to rig something up... anyone with some crazy l33t skillz?
