Hello. This is my first post on this forum. I was wondering if I could upgrade my laptop's graphics card.

Currenly, I've got an Alienware 17 inch that I bought back in 2013. It's got a GTX 765M, but I'd like to upgrade to a better graphics card. Would I be able to upgrade the card to a 980m or not?

i believe u can do so.maybe with a modded config file/vbios.but u will need a new heatsink for the 980m and a bigger psu since i believe yours comes with the 180w psu.there is a lot of link u can go to for information on how to do so.
