I don't think it will work here at Asteroids but it might work at Collatz, they can use some pretty eclectic stuff over there. Yes you can leave your cpu's here and only use your gpu over there. BUT since it is a laptop please make sure you have EXTRA cooling as using the gpu that way will make it alot hotter. I use a usb pad that sits under the laptop and has a fan built into it. The look like this:


That particular one is available thru Amazon for four US dollars!

Mine usually slows down after a few months on non-stop use, so I buy several at a time and just replace it.
