You can't another graphic card for your laptop, since it's almost impossible to change your laptop's gpu.
If you don't want to build one and want a good gaming computer
Either go to newegg and get those gaming computer or go to
www.iBuyPower.com and choose your parts and they'll build it for you.

For less than, perhaps, $450, no, unless you find one at a yard sale from someone who doesn't know what it's capable of for $20.
EDIT: Make that $600+ if you refuse to build it yourself.

It's really not worth it to try to add a gpu to a laptop.

Those are far from gaming computers... 8400GS or an even worse 6100 integrated graphics.

Like Zarr said, around ~$450-$500 would give you enough headroom to get a very cost and performance-effective build. But it all depends on how much money you have to spend, down to the last dollar.

A decent laptop would burn your wallet for ~+900 dollars.

AlienWare is ridiculous. They over-charge by miles-length, and you are sure to get a horrible deal, regardless of what they offer.

This one is actually half decent for the price, but it might be a bit over-budget.

That AlienWare computer is really awesome, I know because my friend has it. I'm not sure if you caught the 1799 dollar price tag.

Do not buy from AlienWare, they add in at least a 50% price inflation to suit their needs. Buy from either newegg or ibuypower.com

The money part certainly comes as a problem. For about $1150, you can get a really good Dell Inspiron 15, assuming you purchase and edit it right from Dell's site.

...That too; the basic XPS 435 has an i7, and is only $1000. But laptops are a lot more convenient.
