Can you help me figure out this hypothetical GPU/ MOBO/Monitor problem

While certainly you can race around in the truck, and you can haul junk around in the car, but you can't expect either to excel doing those things. They just were not designed to swap roles.
I am going to tell you what I tell my clients who want to use their work machines as game machines, "Don't!". Instead, go buy a Playstation, X-Box, or Wii, or build a gaming computer just for games. Otherwise, expect and accept compromises - and less than optimal performance.
You could buy a gaming graphics card and swap them in and out as needed. But that is not practical, and potentially risky, due to constant handling and digging around inside the computer. Not to mention, wear and tear on the PCIe slot causing the contacts to lose tension, affecting the mechanical connection (essential for a solid electrical contact). So to me, that is not an good solution.
Alternatively, you could buy a good gaming card and just use that - but, like the race car, real "work" performance will be greatly limited. So again, not a good solution.
