Has anyone had any luck with external GPUs?

My current laptop only has integrated graphics and no option to install an internal GPU, so I have been considering an external GPU, but they are pretty expensive. If you have used one, would you say they are worth the cost? I would like to be able to play Hogwarts Legacy on at least low to medium settings without stuttering and Diablo 4 when it is released.

    To expand on that, kinda felt like having a desktop and a laptop with none of the benefits that either would provide lol
