Default I must be losing my mind

ok,i msut be absolutley crazy, literally, but for some reason, even though i get nice framreates and a 4110 3dmark 06 score i am wondering:

Is it possible like if you took your computer to a shop, adn had them do work on it, cold they take the GPu, processor out of THE VIDEO CARD ITSELF, and excahnge is with crappy components and put it in the video card so you wont suspect anything while thye got off your your video cards good itnernal components, adn when you gop to verify your card it shows up as the the one you bought, but is doesnt have the power and the chips it should but has lame chips and pour power...

if you truly pity me please leave me a comfort of mind...
thank you very much (dead serious)

They can't remove the GPU processor itself, BUT they can rename pieces of poo as whatever.

um... no, not possible. youd have to rebuild the ENTIRE card.
