Can I use my latop as monitor but still use its grpahics card?

By bodijkhuizen ·
So I recently started building a brand new computer and it is all finished except for the GPU because I want to buy the 3080 but there aren't any for a reasonable price.
I currently have a laptop that is intel based but the PC is AMD-based. the laptop has the following connectors: USB, HDMI, and SS-USB. My computer has the following ports on the MOBO(Asus TUF gaming x570-plus): A lot of SS-ports, type C, HDMI, and those standard round connectors.

My question would be if I could use my laptop as a monitor and use its GPU but all the other vital parts from the PC (CPU and RAM).

If anything is unclear I am happy to provide more information.

Sorry, no. You can't use a laptop as a monitor, and you can't use a laptop as a graphic card.

If you research this.

A few have managed to salvage the LCD in laptops for use as a monitor but I maintain that it's not cost effective and then you ask about the graphic card which moves my answer to no.

Yes, you can use your laptop as a monitor. Connect your laptop with an HDMI port and start using.
