This should work. People have gotten eGPUs to work on Intel NUCs before, and this looks like the motherboard out of one. You'd need a power supply to power up the motherboard itself, and a separate power supply for the eGPU. Based on the old NUC I have, the NUCs don't take 12v inputs, so be careful with what you feed them. It might be that the new ones are different, but in any case, make sure to check.

For a GTX1080Ti, a quality 500W desktop power supply should work just fine.

Give your Node Pro a second Thunderbolt3 controller for reliable peripherals by re-using a TB3 dock (~50$).

NVidia error 43 is a risk. But we do have a script to workaround it.

1. Suggest avoid EXP GDC 9.x as it's unreliable at Gen3 speed. Use a ADT-Link R43SL/SF/SG or R3G instead with it's stable Gen3 wiring:

2. As @Yukikaze points out, error 43 with Nvidia cards on a M.2 interface is now easily fixable:
