Unfortunately you can't just connect a cable from the desktop to the laptop and go like you might be imagining. The HDMI or DisplayPort on your PC and laptop are both display outputs. Though they may look identical to the ports on a monitor, they aren't inputs. They can only send a signal, not receive one from another device.

 

The only way to do it is through various ways of casting from one computer to the other over a network. 

Your "PC master race" thing is cringe.
