    I've never seen an external gfx card. They have'em for sound via USB, but not for graphics, as USB is FAR FAR FAR too slow for graphics card applications.

    Sorry bud.

    I've seen one before but it was so long ago I'm not entirely sure if its real or just a joke.

    But short answer, no, you cannot get a "different" graphics card and use it for your MacBook.
