    A few days ago I saw a computer in a Popular Mechanics that was build into a desk. This computer's GPU was connected with a pci-e extension cable. Now, I don't see such cables in the shops here. So, does such a cable really exist? And if they do exist, how effective are they?

    There are extenders for all kinds of things out there... I've never used one, never needed to. When you're building a PC into desks or anything else, it's always a good idea to plan for airflow, cooling, etc.
