Hello Lenovo Community,
I'm thinking about getting the Advanced Dock Station so I can run my computer with a different graphics card via the PCI Express Card Capabilites in the Docking Station. Is the Docking Station compatible with absolutely every PCI Express Card on the market or are there limitations? If there are limitations, what are they? If you don't know about this docking station, here's a link: Lenovo Docking Station. I use Lenovo Thinkpad T500 laptop and run Windows Vista SP2.
Sidequestion: I want to be able to run the PC game Star Wars: The Old Republic on my Lenovo T500 laptop, with the docking station also. What PCI Express Cards would you reconmend to play this game?

Thanks for the Response!
I'm curious about the eGPU and kind of want to try it out.... I have some questions though:
1. Will my computer be able to run it? I'm running on the Vista OS
2. What do I need to buy in order to make it work?
3. How do I put it all together? Seems pretty complicated
4. What are some of the better inexpensive PCI Express Cards for this device?

AMD 5570 DDR card (not the one with GDR ram) is the fastest card that I am aware of that meets the power requirements in the Advanced Dock. The new AMD 7750 MIGHT work as well - I'm not aware of anybody testing yet. It could take some clock-speed limiting to make it work.
