Is that the description for your laptop?

If its a laptop then u can't upgrade ur GPU,

using a dongle which allows external GPU to run for laptop thats ur only option. Its like a cord that connects the GPU and ur laptop. 

As for GPU suggestion go for a gtx1050 or rx460 (yes a 460 and not 560 since amd have reduced the performance of 560 to a 460 but still costs more)

You CAN upgrade your laptop GPU it's just that the options are usually limited and costly. Which model is it? If it's HP you're pretty much fucked.

you can upgrade your laptop gpu the same way you can get a brain transplant, just because you can doesnt mean you should

you can get an external GPU box type thing. Im aware its not that portable, which is the only point in having a laptop, but its would be nice if you cant get a desktop.

this is one of the first one's i found when searching them, but theres many out there

laptop GPUs are fucking horrible to install because of the size constraints

@Brando that's just the psu/enclosure for a graphics card, there no card included... and

  • Alienware 13 R1, R2 & R3
  • Alienware 15 R1, R2 & R3
  • Alienware 17 R2, R3 & R4
  • Alienware X51 R3
  • Alienware Alpha R2

it only works with alienware laptops

also @Anysauceyour budget is way too low to get anything even remotely decent, just save for a desktop or something in the future
