Can I mount the AMD Radeon R9 M295X

I have a question, perhaps silly .... I want to know if it was possible to mount on a Imac a video card AMD instead of the originally planned for mac. What do you think?

The 'Thin Series' iMac's don't use MXM cards they use directly soldered graphic chips like the MacBook/MacBook Pro laptops.

Here's the IFIXIT teardown: iMac Intel 27" EMC 2639 Teardown. Jump to Step 6 for a good view of the graphics chip and its memory.

no you cant, there is not PCI-E ports for you too add the card let alone space for the card too fit. the R9's are for desktop computers.
