Swapping a laptop GPU isn't very practical, and sometimes impossible. You typically can only upgrade with the same GPUs the laptop manufacturer offered in that model. The HD8970M was a top tier card, so there is likely no better option. This is the major downside to buying a laptop, you have very limited upgrade options.
