So few laptops support this.

That you really need to supply the make and model numbers.

So there are USB cards but speed is not high enough for games. Seems OK for videos.
Be sure to share if gaming is the goal.

Also, are you open to the GeForce NOW solution?

Most likely no.

Even more likely no if the laptop only has integrated graphics when you purchased. Laptops don't have standard motherboard sizes and shapes (see all the different laptop cases). The motherboards are designed with the case and and most components are part of the motherboard.
