G51 VX-RX 05 (BestBuy version) Video card replacement

My laptop was bought 2011, back then it was really good for gaming and the temperatures were low while playing, today I can only play low resolution games with high temperature. Is it possible to bring back its high gaming performance once i replaced it? Or I should also consider changing the ram, processor and fan of my laptop. I saw a spare part which is a nvidia gtx 260m at aliexpress. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170415/5a1de146026397fce9a01675aca335da.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170415/afd263372806a69a91b16b1410805df2.jpg

Buy a new laptop. It will save you some headache. What is your current graphics card? Maybe it just needs some cleaning of the fans. That would help a little reducing the heat. For newer games, consider buying a new laptop.*
