Hi all,

Is there such a product as a USB Graphics Card? I have a laptop with a broken VGA output on it and Dell have qouted me £450 to get it fixed so I just wondered if this would be a cheap option?

Cheers

As far as I know, USB Graphics Cards don't exist as Graphics Cards need to be in DIRECT contact to the motherboard (using PCI, PCI Express or AGP) as the "transfer rate" would be too slow and your computer wouldn't reconise the Graphics card during POST
