Hi, I've got an Asus GL752VW DH71 and it features an MXM GTX960M, the thing is that games like GTA 5, The Witcher 3, AC Unity struggle a little bit on Ultra settings so they work fine at medium-high settings (not even high) I can cope with that because it sounds reasonable but..if it can't handle fully a 1080p 2014-2015 game....then in 2 years time it won't handle barely any new game so I just wanted to know if I could Upgrade the GTX960M to a GTX980M or equivalent in 2 years because It's a quite badass laptop I've got a beast CPU Power ( i7 6700HQ) and with the M.2 950 Pro + 32 GB DDR4 RAM I feel I've done an investment for at least 5 years but that GPU...will get outdated very soon. I asked some friends who know about this but some answered yes others said no...so I'm confused and I would like some help, thanks!!

Teh 960m is the best card that laptop comes equipped with, so you won't be able to go any higher. In general, one can upgrade a laptop upto and including it's line-s(all laptops using the same "chasis") top tier specs.

There is no way around this: one may game on a laptop but don't ever expect AAA gaming in high/ultra and 1080 or up.
These things are desktop territory.
My advice: take that money and put it towards a desktop.
Or, if you must game on a laptop, wait a bit as i think razor and alienware are putting out solutions for attaching external desktop GPUs to their laptops.

I sure know that, I've got a desktop 4790K, GTX970, 32GB RAM, 2 SSD...etc soon it will be replaced when 4K becomes more mainstream (UltraHD Bluray Drvies and more brands manufacturing players) then I'll get a 4K screen and a 980 Ti or a 1070 or whatever, but the thing is that I can't carry my desktop around, I'm only home just 4-5 hours before going to bed, so I do gaming and MOSTLY video editing outside home that's why I need a GTX980M in a coulple of months.
I don't expect getting a solid 1080p ultra AAA 60 fps, I surely know that a 960M will not do it but I'm fine with 60 fps in medium settings and 30 in medium-high or just high but if it can't handle a game properly now, talking in 2 years time...games such as new Assassins Creed and similar titles released in 2018 or soemthing around there..those won't be even 30 fps...or very low settings... I just don't see myself editing a 4/6 K video or even an UltraHD Bluray encoding with a GTX960M or doing heavy stuff in Premiere Pro and After effects. That's why I asked, if I could upgrade to a GTX980M or the equivalent in 2 years time (GTX 1080M?? ) As for now everything is doing perfectly at 1080p except gaming

Thank you very much, so in about 2-3 years time do you advice me to sell my laptop and just buy a new one?

You'll have to get a new one, obviously.
