I was thinking about upgrading my graphics card in my Alienware M14x because it is a little bit slow, so i was wondering if i can upgrade it and maybe if you would know of any good laptop graphics cards that are out there.

no, you cannot upgrade your GPU in M14x

The M11x and M14x have the GPU embedded on the motherboard to save space and lower costs. The obvious downside being you can't upgrade it.

the m14x has its nvidia gpu soldered onto the motherboard so you canot upgrade it later. but there is two versions which you can initially purchase with your system which is the 1 and 2 gb versions.

What the tech meant was that the M14x is available with the choice of two GPUs. You can order it with either the 1 GB GT 650m, or a 2 GB GT 650m. You cannot however, upgrade it later like dajakesta was asking. Oh damn you jimbo.. you posted the answer first.. lol

it's so funny i have m14x r2 and I spoke with customer service today and he said that i can upgrade my video car up to gtx 690m :)) oh lol it can't be, cause even on Nvidia site there is no such video card. Maximu Mobile video card that i found there was GTX 680MX.

Is it possible to replace the gpu with the same type?

Hello Friends!

I have question :

My Alienware is 14r2 with video card gt 650m 1gb , can i upgrade , or that is not possible???

You'd have to find a new motherboard that has a GT650M 2GB soldered on. The cost and pain to swap boards would most likely not be worth the benefit you'd get.
