Hi, I have a desktop and i want to upgrade my video card to the Geforce GTX 970 4gb or something like it. Problem is, that card requires an intel cpu, which means, i would need to get a new cpu, and then a new mobo and pretty much a whole new build. so... i found this online.




its an external laptop pci graphics card adapter. lets you adapt any video card to your laptop to play high end games (with the bottleneck of your laptops cpu). question is... would this kind of thing work with my desktop so i wouldnt have to buy a whole new computer?

You don't need an Intel CPU.

That card does NOT require an Intel CPU .. you can use AMD with it as well .. and just to be sure I chatted with an Nvidia Tech who confirmed this.  Looks like Kilroy beat me to the answer though.
