Windows 7: Upgrading My Alienware m18x R1

Upgrading My Alienware m18x R1

Hello guys, I had lots of issues with my laptop and I decided that I am going to upgrade it.
As I have been informed by someone from the official site of Alienware the R1-R2 and R3 models have the same case but a different motherboard.

So I am willing to upgrade my R1 motherboard
and my GPU from GTX 675m to GTX 780m or GTX 880m

I am willing to spend around 450 to 550-600$.

Anyone who can help, let me know.

I can send whatever info you need that help you get enough info for which is the right motherboard or everything that is needed for the upgrade to be possible.

Thanks for your time.
