I recently managed to snag a free computer from the office, and I am trying to give it a few upgrades on the cheap. I have a broken laptop with the afore mentioned GeForce GT 540M and I was wondering if I can take that out and put it into the desktop. Thanks.

Sadly no, if the GPU is not soldered to the motherboard, which yours probably is, it dosent run on a PCIe x16 lane like desktop cards do. It would be too easy otherwise.
