Thinkpad w530 eGPU/ part identification questions.

Hello. I'm James. 

 

Specs:

W530

i7-3740

Intel HD 4000 Graphics 

Nvidia Quadro K2000m Graphics

12gb Samsung ram

Samsung 850 evo 500gb

Hitachi 500gb HDD / HDD caddy

 

The GPU in question is gtx 1060 6gb of some brand name and configuration. The prices and availability are so far and few between that I haven't decided on a exact model.

 

I was wondering if anyone could help me indentify what PCI/PCIe and Express Card slots I have. I have looked on Lenovo's part lookup page but I'm so new to this I don't honestly know what exactly I am searching for. Pardon my ignorance. I intent to try a DIY eGPU setup since I do infact have the Express card reader. I know I could use a PCIe setup and remove the wifi card but that seems like alot more of a hassle than a "plug and play" style setup from the Express card slot even though I will lose performance. Lets be honest it's still going to be better than the HD4000 or K2000m. I have read briefly about the whitelist on the BIOS and may have a workaround but I am still researching so any experience into the matter would be greatly appreciated. Right, so any help with maybe getting part numbers and other specfications is much appreciated. Again, pardon my ignorance.

 

Some sites regading the matter.
