I currently own an Alienware M17x R4 laptop with a video card NVIDIA Geforce GTX 657m that I would like to upgrade, if possible. What would be the best possible graphics card upgrade in a $200-$300 usd price range?

There is no upgrade. Due to laptops compact design they are proprietary so you can't change parts out other than ram and sometimes cpu

The answer is nothing.

While you can upgrade the graphics card in an alienware laptop finding a suitable MXM format graphics card finding a card is very difficult. Ebay is generally the only place.

The GTX 675m itself sells for over $400 so buying an "upgrade" for only $200 - $300 is basically impossible.

Here's a refurbished GTX 675m selling for $427.
