Will the Mobility Radeon HD 5870 card, work on the crosshair V forumla Z Motherboard?

I would like to test my motherboard before I buy a graphics card for it, is this possible? ( The Mobility 5870 is currently in my Asus G73JH) I am confident that I can do a one time transfer between the new and old system, for testing purposes.

Any gpu recommendations for around $300 would be appreciated.

I will be using..
Motherboard- Crosshair v forumla z,
Cpu- Amd 9370 vishera, (also purchased the Kraken x60)
Ram- G.skill Ripjaws X 1866.
Psu- Enermax Sgalaxy EGX1000EWL 1000W

(Still debating on the rest)

This is my first PC build and I know how a lot of you feel about the processor I chose, but it's purchased and I would like to give it a shot.

I'm a bit new to this, so please keep it positive!

Mobility Radeon graphics cards are usually built into laptop motherboards, and those that are removable use a connector that is not used on desktop motherboards. Unfortunately, your idea isn't possible.
