Upgrading GPU in Alienware M17xR4 laptop

Hello!

I am looking to upgrade my GPU in my Alienware M17xR4 latop, which I purchased sometime in April last year.

OS: Windows 7 64-bit 
CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3740QM CPU @ 2.70GHz 2.70GHz 
RAM: 12GB DDR3
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 675M

What GPU's are compatible & will fit in my case?
When I look for GPU's I only seem to be able to purchase them on Ebay or Amazon? Is there no official place to buy them? I recently started studying computer science, so I know a few basics, but nothing else.

Would appreciate some help.

 Hi!

You can upgrade to either an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680M or an AMD HD7970M. We don’t currently have those parts for sale, but you can search for other online stores that might have them available.
