The problem is finding a port to hook the eGPU into. On the newest laptops you can use USB-C/Thunderbolt. You do not have that. On older laptops you can use the Expresscard slot which is equivalent to pcie. You don't have that either. USB 3.0 is too slow. The only port that could work is a mini-pcie port but your wireless card occupies that. You could theoretically remove the whole bottom cover and the wireless card and attach the eGPU dongle to the wireless port. It would "work" in that way with a lot of hardware (eGPU cable and dock, desktop video card,desktop power supply and external monitor) and you would have better video than the laptop currently supplies, but at a cost of $400-500 all in.
To be clear, you would be running the laptop half torn apart and the games would not be on the laptop screen but an external monitor. Your processor is not even very powerful so this would also limit what you can do. I say forget about it but if you want to try, post back.
