Default Hi I have an alienware m15x looking how to upgrade. (NOOB)

As the title states I am currently looking to buy the latest video card for my laptop or am I stuck with this current video card?

Upgrading laptop graphics cards is difficult to do, and requires nearly complete disassembly of the laptop. Every laptop is different in design, so it may be easier with some, harder with others. I'm not sure about Alienware, but my guess is you're stuck with what you have...

Yup you're pretty much stuck with it.

Overclocking it is the closest to an upgrade you'll get. I don't have an alienware but its cooler looks bigger than my G73JW cooler and I overclock this things 460m all day long never going above 75C.
