Is there someway to use a external graphics card when you have one intergreted graphics card?

I'm hopefully going to buy a better graphics card with some RAM later on.
It'd really help if I didn't have to buy a need computer to get a better gameplay.

If you have a corresponding motherboard graphics card or PCI slot...which is of the same type of the graphics card that you wish to install...yes, you can install a physical card.

System or motherboard manufacturer of the currently installed graphics chip?

Generally speaking...onboard/integrated graphics can be disabled in the BIOS (if necessary) when using a physical video card with a board having onboard graphics. I say "if necessary" because it seems that some boards automatically may make an installed physical card...the graphics component used.
