    Anyone here already has a Sonnettech Echo?

    Looks like a great way to turn the MBP into a awesome gaming machine. Add a SATA card and a GPU, run windows on a external HDD and use a desktop GPU without buying an extra computer.

    Does anyone know if it's possible to use an external GPU and use that GPU's video signal via a Thunderbolt display?

    thunderbolt display uses thunderbolt, by adding a ViDock solution, i've read that you have to hook the monitor up to the external GPU, and i doubt theres any high-end gaming cards that have thunderbolt port.

    so nope.
