Wondering if it's possible to upgrade my 560M GPU in my G74SX?

Not likely, since the GPU is a custom form factor. Still, look around on eBay, give it a try.

The GPU is soldered to the mainboard, so unless you are 1) brave, 2) very steady with a soldering iron *and* 3) check that new NVIDIA GPUs have the same pin-out assignments, it pretty hopeless. Just overclock the 560 and you'll have the equivalent of a 670 (a rebranded version): use MSI Afterburner or NVIDIA Inspector.
