My mother who know nothing about computers bought me a alienware for Christmas two years ago,and idk if they fucked up but I was supposed to get a NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 970M with 3GB GDDR5,but they fucked up and put in a AMD Radeon R9 M290x and I've just had to deal with it.Now this graphics card is outdated and I can't fucking get a new laptop so I was wondering if it was possible for me to put a new graphics card in and what would you guys think I should put in.I've got now idea when it comes to hardware.Thanks!

Maybe alienware is a small exception but for the most-part, replacing parts on a laptop is a nightmare, or not possible.
The most you can normally replace relatively easily is like a ram stick or a ssd. I dunno about laptop graphics cards, they're probably all tailored to specific laptop models, therefore wouldn't fit into the space you have in the machine when you take yours out.

Just join me and embrace the low settings lifestyle. Guess what, the game is just as fun!

Yeah but the problem is I can not play fallout 4 on low and I can't even get 30 fps

Yeah they are pretty bullshit, but then again... they are laptops, what do you expect.

Laptop performance has improved from how it was a few years ago but it is still well behind desktops.
It seems like high-end mobile gpus are always comparible to the high-end desktop gpus from say... 3-ish years before they come out

It's not the best performance but on the other hand, when you stay in a lot of hotels and travel for work like I do, it's nice to have shitty-desktop performance that fits into your bag that you can fire up straight away. Or even just meeting up with some friends to play games. Moving a desktop around is an absolute chore.

It's a trade off for the mobility and sometimes works out for the better

Kill yourself op

>>51570060
Yeah they use an mxm slot or something for the gpu. Find out which spec your slot is (mxm 1, 2, whatever), buy a new gpu from ebay that fits in the slot and you're good to go.

I'm not fucking complaining,I love this laptop its just not up to date and I don't want to mindlessly slam shit into my pc,and because I have no background knowledge,I'm asking people who do have knowledge on this topic

Should be in the manual. Of course, if you give me the model number I'll try and help you find out.

The 900 series was released in sept 2014 , you're either underage or this is bad b8.

MXM 3.0B
You'll be able to buy pretty much any new gpu. Just make sure you can keep it cool with the existing heatsink.
>>
>>51570110
Nope only a few of the newest gayming laptops have support for swapping graphics chips (they are really not cards in laptops, but a chip that's slightly bigger than a desktop cpu), but even so the cpu is still the same and a mobile graphics chip costs a lot more than a graphics card.
