    You can't upgrade the graphics cards in the MacBooks, or most any laptop of any brand.

    Agreed, unless you are dealing with a custom gaming laptop, particularly those based on a Clevo chassis, you will not be able to upgrade your gpu. In your case this is due to the MB using integrated graphics and when dealing with a dedicated gpu, as in my Asus G53JW, upgrades are generally not available because of issues such as heatsink placement.
