External Graphics Card and RAM on laptop for video editing?

windchimes

Can you hear it..??
Hi guys,

Need assistance here. I need a workaround to work on video editing on my Corei5 5200 ( 2.2GHz) , 4GB laptop running on Windows 7 ( Dell Inspiron 15-3000 series )Ultimate. Currently the system freezes easily while I load more elements during editing. Would like to know

1) whether I can attach an external Graphics Card and RAM to rectify this? Is that a viable and pocket-friendly option?
2) Any way to free my RAM for the editing program, or to prioritize it, while it's running?

Need to find a way around as I need to work on editing and currently can't invest in a workstation or another laptop.
Looking forward!

Cheers!

Your cpu is not meant for heavy tasks like video editing. There is no point in using an external GPU as neither your laptop supports it nor you'll be able to take any advantage from it. i5 5200U is a bottleneck. On the top of that, external GPU docks are not cheap. It'll be better to get a new i5 6600k based rig then to buy a eGPU with dock.

As for the ram, just add another 4 or 8 gb ram stick. They don't cost much.

You need a thunderbolt port for external graphics.
There aren't enough pice lanes if you go by normal USB 3.0

Alternative suggestion-
Start saving for a Rig
