I saw this video on youtube and got to wondering if such a setup could be used as a workaround to get my G75VW with a failed video card back on it's feet, since finding replacement cards for these laptops is very difficult basically impossible in the EU. Could it have compatibility issues with the BIOS or something?

Note: this is NOT a thunderbolt product, I know all about the fake thunderbolt port on the G75VW and was crushed to learn that the laptop does not support thunderbolt (even though it has the icon stamped on the chassis, FIRE whoever thought that was a good idea ASUS). This uses the internal PCI-E slot that the wifi-card should be in.
