Can anyone suggest a decent external graphics card for gaming in medium sort of quality?

[EDIT] Not much more than £150 but happy to take advice on anything more expensive. Not too worried about graphics atm just want to actually be able to play the games without lag..

It's really not that easy to upgrade the graphics on a laptop. I don't think there is a such thing as external graphics.

You're better off getting a new laptop with better graphics capabilities or building your own desktop, and using your laptop for other tasks.

There is such thing, but they are expensive, it would normally cost less to buy a new laptop if I'm honest.

Basicall there are not external graphics cards for the laptops, Or even upgradable ones where you can replace the internal one that is built in.. Your basically SOL with that depoartment for laptops. Where as for the desktop/workstation counterpart. There are. Just a matter of which slot the graphics card is using like an AGP or PCIE slots.
