Hi there
I have an Alienware 17
Service Tag: 4DB7J12
Express Service Code: 9512016662
Warranty: Expired

The corrent Graphic card is :
490-BBRS : NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 860M graphics with 2GB GDDR5

I want to change it to 4gb at least because this one is damaged

Can you tell me which graphic card model can i use because my experience is very low

So i will take the model and search and buy

If you're looking to keep it in the Nvidia family, and you should, you can go up to the 980m version in your laptop. But only one graphic card, you can't run that particular card as a pair in SLI unless you have 2 power supply bricks wired as 1 because of the power draw. But for single cards the 980m is the best you can do. Anything after that like the "10" series cards have a different architecture that isn't compatible,
Look here if you ebay:
