Re: [Parts Check] Has anyone heard of ViDock?

Not really, the cards that generally work in the constraints of an x1 slot are the GT 610 and HD 6450 which are both slower than what you have (and slower than the integrated graphics on a first generation i3).

So even the vidock4+ would be a bit of a writeoff?

That's too bad because this would be a great idea, probably much better when Thunderbolt hits the market.

Yep, because you are still limited to the Expresscard x1 interface, which depending on the age of your PC (assuming it even has Expresscard, many do not) is either 1GB/s or 5GB/s depending on the revision (Expresscard 1.0 vs 2.0).

Thunderbolt would be better because you could use the full x8 capacity assuming you had no other devices down the chain.
