My question is...if I plug an external Graphic Card to my laptop, and not connect it to a monitor. Will it increase the laptop graphics because of the extra Graphic Card.

Card Example: Sewell dvDeck USB to DVI, VGA, External Video Card, High Resolution, 1600 x 1200

I'm very certain that the USB bus doesn't contain enough bandwidth to do any noticeably good improving.I could be wrong, but I doubt.

No it won't increase the laptops graphics, this thing is only used for hooking up additional monitors. so if you don't hook it up to a monitor it won't do anything

As long as you have a Expresscard 2.0 slot on your laptop, you could use this for an external graphics solution. It looks like it may support some midrange video cards. Expect to pay big for this upgrade though and forfeit mobility. With video card, this may bring you close to 500 dollars. Its for sale direct from the website listed.

Review of the product; It shows the system using a 5770
