I'm sure this is a super, mega noob question, but is there any way that you can somehow modify a console, says PS3 or Xbox360 (or older) and access the gpu and use it to support your computers gpu? I KNOW this isn't practical, but I'm asking more from an inquisitive, "I wonder if that's even possible?" position. Any suggestions or insight on attempting or possible theories are appreciated. Thanks.

It might be possible as long as the AMD chip in say, the 360, Isnt sautered. Of course this would require some interface of some sort to link it with the PC. Also, the chips are usually a custom version and I doubt they are even supported at all with PC drivers.

Theory rooted with "some" facts =/

Or mabye If you have the Knowledge to Write your Own custom driver for it. And somehow interface the 360s MB with a PCs MB

I wouldnt call it impossible. Id call it not worth the time lol....

IE/Newegg/Search/Nvidia[AMD]/AddtoCart/Fedex/Inmycase is my perfered option lol

I believe its soldered to the motherboard. The GPU melting off is the key reason you get RROD.
