I ordered a EXP GDC Beast on my local adverts site to use with my 31, and a GTX 650 to use with it.

I wil use this thread to post my experiences of getting a eGPU working with my 31.

I still have my ASUS XG station, newest one I used it on was a CF-19 Mk2. it's been boxed up since. Still has the 8800gt in it and hooks up with express card slot. Only thing I didn't like was I couldn't loop it back to the laptop screen. (Alienware now has one that will do that on there machines.)

A 650 should work good. I have a 650 Ti in my every day desktop.

Ended up being very simple.

EXP GDC needs the ATX PW switch to ON and PTD set to 7s. First power up the eGPU and then the Toughbook.

After that, glhf.
