External Graphics on Lenovo Y500?

laptops

#1

So I have this lenovo Y500 laptop with its multi-function CD drive bay (probably has a name, but can't think of it right now) that can accept a second GT650m graphics card that would run in SLI with the internal one. I was wondering if there was a way to adapt the connector on the inside to something that would be able to accept a normal desktop graphics card. I know some adapters exist in order to convert the mini PCI slots that are normally used for networking cards into something a graphics card can use (with external power of course). Is some sort of adapter possible to make if I know the pinout of the connector? Any advice or resources to look at would be helpful.

there has been an adapter available.But it seemingly sold out for now.
