    I am not sure if this is possible, looking by the design of it as its much more thinner profile then the G750, normally Asus does not allow upgradable components on new G750 JZ/JS/JM as far as I know other then the usual HDD/SSD/Ram Modules, and the same might apply for G550JK series however I might be wrong, but by the looks of it I don't think you can. Maybe a Asus Rep or Asus Guru can help more on this model.

    I think its impossible. Motherboard design include specific GPU. Especially physical memory for GPU is already installed [fixed] on the mother and there is no room to put more [if newer GPU need that to achieve proper performance]. Also another GPU perhaps needs a little another architecture arround the graphic processor?? I dont know. Laptops mostly are not upgradable. Only main memory, hard disk, and sometimes CPU [the last one take place very rare]
