My HP Envy 17t meets system requirements for a virtual reality application I want to use, except for the graphics card.  I understand that there are commercially-available devices which allow attachment of an external graphics card to a notebook, as discussed here:
http://www.notebookreview.com/howto/how-to-upgrade-your-notebook-with-an-external-graphics-card/    I'd like to know if any of these devices could allow me to use an external NVidia 970 or AMD R290 with 4GB dedicated video RAM with my notebook?

Yes, the Razer Core will do this but:
1) Won't ship until the end of August - provided production QC is OK
2) Is a $500 add-on to your laptop and makes it significantly less portable, you could probably pick up a Desktop that met the basic specs you needed for less than that particularly given:
3) Doesn't include the cost of the R290 which you need to provide separately
4) Requires an external monitor
