My laptop model is the Acer Aspire VX5-591G-7061
CPU: Intel core i7-7700HQ 2.80 GHz
GPU: Nvidia GTX 1050 mini
Intel HD 630
OS: WIndows 10 64 bit
RAM: 16 GB
SOLID STATE DRIVE: 256 GB
HARDRIVE: 2TB
SCREEN RESOLUTION: 1920 x 1080
The power supply is 135 watts (I think thats what the box said)
I want to Upgrade to a GTX 1060 mini, I understand that I need more power so I bought a 550-watt PSU to replace my old one. The website said the GPU was dedicated (meetgadget.com) and not integrated, is it possible to upgrade, and is there anything that I may have forgotten that could mess me up?

These guys said it all so your left with overclocking your gpu (free but you need good thermal paste and better cooling solution depending how much you oc) or going eGPU (expensive)
