Default kinda like beowolf, but not.

ok so i have this laptop, it's not great for gaming, but it works (~9fps on a good day) i also have this desktop, it doesn't work (needs an OS) but i don't use it cuz the laptop is better. I was wondering if there was a way to get the desktop, to'think' it's a graphics card and to get the laptop to 'think' the desktop is a graphics card, and not use my no good POS x3100.

any input?

ubuntu 8.10
intel duo core 2.0ghtz
2gb ram
x3100 card

no OS
amd athlon 1700
512 ram
ati radeon atlantis 256mb 1600.... something like that.

umm no i dont quite get what you are talking about the only thing i know of in existance of anything like that is the external gpu housing asus is either developing or has allready released. a cpu wont work like a gpu. u need a dedicated gpu, but your on a laptop you cant upgrade it. my recomendation save up 5/600 and build yourself a gaming rig that will slaughter yoru laptop.

intel Core I7 8700k@ 5.0ghz-Nvidia GTX1080 ti ftw3-Aorus 5 z370 mobo-16gb ddr4 G-Skill trident Z rgb 3000mhz - 1tb samsung 960 pro, 2tb wd blue- thermaltake rgb 750w gold-Phanteks pro M TG- Samsung CHG70 1440p 144hz 32 inch QLED.
