OK. You're going to put a high-end 3D graphics engine in an external device. That means packaging, additional hardware to manage the USB interface, and a power supply.

You're also replacing an internal graphics card, which sits on a bus, with an external device that communicates over USB. The only way that the external device could possibly display things fast enough is if the data on the bus is in the form of a display command set. You could use a representation of GDI/GDI+, OpenGL. The external device therefore has to have the intelligence to interpret the display command set and execute in on its 3D graphics hardware. You've added another processor to manage the display command handling.

Like Chris said, the idea is impractical and ludicrous. Making a graphics device an external adapter doesn't gain you anything.
