    There is a way to add a graphics card to a laptop, but it's not for gaming purposes. Strange as it might sound, you can plug one in to a USB port. Doing this gives you an extra graphics output so you can drive an external monitor as well as your laptop's built-in screen. If your laptop already has a VGA, DisplayPort or HDMI output, adding a USB graphics card means you can drive a third screen: you're not limited to two displays.

    As others say, the short answer is no (and I doubt an external GPU is a good idea, at least in the future with them more powerful, requiring ever more bandwidth).
    There is however one loophole, “cloud gaming” (that or possibly other providers; this one allows for any Windows program not just all games):
