    I have a Geforce 980M laptop card, and I'm wondering if there is control board or a DIY project where you can convert this card into a desktop PC video card. (Just like when you only have a laptop monitor and you buy its control board to get a working PC monitor)

    Not worth it. 980M is getting long in the tooth anyways.

    Most new MXM GPUs also support upgrading at a large cost as well.
