The short answer is that you really can't upgrade the video card on a laptop.   It's possible if your laptop came with different manufacturer options that include a better video card. You could probably find a chip and the necessary cooling for it on eBay or some other third-party website. This is definitely not worth the money, time, or labor required to make the swap.

The other option is one of those video card enclosures, but they cost like $500 and require Thunderbolt for the connection. Thunderbolt connection is pretty rare on low-mid end machines and having to use the GPU enclosure will make your laptop no longer portable.

You pretty much need to buy a new laptop that has a better video card...or buy a desktop that will allow you to upgrade the video card in the future.
