If you just like hacking to see what is possible, then this is a cool idea. If you are hoping/depending on this actually working then you should expect to be disappointed. It is possible that with a lot of tweaking you could get this to function, but it is not likely. Even if it does work, you should expect terrible performance.

For the cost of an adapter, GPU, and monitor (unless you already have one) you are much better off buying a new/used laptop or desktop.
