I saw someone selling these (ATI X1400, NVIDIA 7900GS, NVIDIA FK1600M PRECISION M90) and wondered if they can be used on my machine. I have a Gateway W350a, mobo is T-1628, 3GB RAM, Turion x2 64 TL-60, ATI 1270. I've looked at my mobo and the cooling components of these GPUs won't fit. Can I remove the cooling unit and install the board alone? I'll be using the machine for browsing, videos, and photo processing; gaming is negative due to the age and specs of the setup.

Are you did a research about possibility to use GPU extension board before? Of course it doesn't fit. Your laptop motherboard with ATI 1270 iGPU does not support these. Stop kicking dead horse and get more or less decent computer instead.
