External video cards are severely inhibited by the bandwidth of the external bus. An internal, PCI-e card is going to be an order of magnitude faster than something attached via the comparatively feeble USB bus.

What external cards are useful for is massive multi-monitor setups, but that's about it.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
