Look up your model of your laptop. I know alot of online sites that sell them. I can't remember any atm.

I'm not sure on the second question.

graphic cards are hard in laptops, as they have to be a certain size and orientation. I guess you could buy a few broken ones of the same model, and see if any of them work.

GPU definitely depends on the laptop...
I know in my laptop my GPU PCB is soldered directly onto the system board...
Only way to get a higher end GPU?
Get a higher end system board...
I'd easily have to shell out $200-400
