RE: alienware GPU upgrage

Yes for this system we had validated the following video cards.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M graphics with 2GB GDDR5

AMD Radeon R9 M290X with 4GB GDDR5

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 880M graphics with 8GB total GDDR5

If you are still under warranty I will recommend to contact the sales department so they can assist you or if you feel comfortable doing the replacement you can check out this video.
