Could I add a GTX 750 ti using the following items? (I know it would be bottlenecked, but anything is better than intel integrated graphics)

1st item: http://www.amazon.com/Powered-Extender-Litecoin-Bitcoin-Mining/dp/B00HZ0M9F2/ref=sr_1_2?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1461273526&sr=1-2&keywords=pcie+x1+to+x16


2nd item: http://www.amazon.com/Mini-Express-Riser-Speed-Cable/dp/B00JIV9AZS/ref=pd_sim_sbs_147_1?ie=UTF8&dpID=41%2BhCIFr0iL&dpSrc=sims&preST=_AC_UL160_SR160%2C160_&refRID=15NR426J3SR490030PXH

I have a mini pci express slot in my laptop and it isn't whitelisted for wifi or anything, so if you take a look at both items it is kind of obvious how I plan to do this. Finally, I know someone might say selling my current laptop and getting a new one would be better, but considering the original price of my computer, this would actually be cheaper. I can't sell a computer for more than what I bought it for.
 
Hi,

I would go for the first one which has a longer cable. You don't want the eGPU to be just hanging on the side of your laptop. And yes you are correct when you say that the wifi adapter will be removed from your laptop and wifi will not be an option again. :) Good luck with your build. :)

Wouldn't I have to use both cables? The second one would be to extend the mini pci express to a pci express x1 slot, and the first one would be to make that pcie x1 slot into x16, so I can put a gpu in it.
