...Well that depends on where you are located. Could probably contact Dell and send it to them.

Laptop: MSI GT70 2OC-059us | i7-4700MQ | 16GB | GTX 770m | 500GB SSD / 750GB HDD | 17.3" | Win10 Pro
Desktop: 4690k | 12GB g.Skill RipJaws | GTX 970 | 520hx | Z87X-UD4H | Corsair Vengeance C70 | Corsair H110 | Acer 25" | Acer 22" | Win10
Mobile: Samsung Galaxy Note 5

If I help you, or you just like what I said, rep me by clicking the under my post

We need to know where you are at before anyone can suggest a store.

Dell will probably be the most reliable, but the most expensive.

Some local shops may do this, they're hit or miss in my experience however. You could just hop on to Google Maps and look for repair places in your area and give them a call. They should be able to give you an estimate.

i would send it to dell, they'll probably just send you a replacement instead of fixing it anyway. plus you'd get a warranty.

The only place to get replacement Dell Video Card for a laptop would be from Dell Directly. If it's outside warranty, they are not cheap. They only way you are going find a 3rd party video card is if some one happens to have another faulty laptop where the video card is still working. Otherwise, you are taking your chances as just about all the laptop spare part places I know have a pay first with no return for wrong item purchased policy.
