Lenovo T530 Upgrade Question

Im upgrading my lenovo T530's graphics card. I aim to do so by removing the wifi chip, thus freeing up a PCI-E port, and using an EXP GDC to connect a GTX750ti 2GB. All I ask is for someone other than me to check if this should work and that all parts should be compatible. Also, what version of EXP GDC should I buy?

PSREF for the T530 if you need it

Thanks in advance!

I cannot answer your question but am curious to know what draws you to the wifi slot over expresscard?

Expresscard is by far better solution. Many, including me, used it with T530 or it's little brother T430.

Thanks for the reply! Would the above graphics card work with this setup though? Can I use my laptop screen with it, aswell as an external monitor? What kind of PSU do I need?
