Is it possible to run a Mac edition video card in a PC?

I found a EVGA GTX 680 Mac Edition. Not sure if it's working or not.
Can this run OK in a PC or will it not work at all?

Will it boot Windows in UEFI mode correctly after the bastard Apple EFI firmware has been loaded?

Fl0r!an says no.
It might depend on the UEFI implementation, my Asus board refuses to boot without CSM when no UEFI GOP graphics card is present (it'll reboot and automatically reenable CSM). UGA video drivers are no part of UEFI spec, so I guess it's usually not supported.

I’ve installed the GTX 680 into an old PC running Windows 10 (it has an old - pre UEFI BIOS). The card is detected. I have boot screen.
