Solved New Laptop or New Graphics card?

Specs: Windows 10, 6gb
Recently I fell in love with the game called Overwatch. The only problem I've had with it is the lack of fps.
I've been trying to get up the fps in many different ways but nothing worked.

I used the website and I learned that the problem was my Graphic card.

The laptop that I'm using was bought recently and every part of it is working fine except that Graphic card. (I have to use a laptop as my parents are divorced and I swap places every week).

I read that you can upgrade your Graphic card on some laptops, but that it could be hard.

So my question to you is: Should and can I upgrade my graphic card, saving money as I'm not in any way rich. Or should I just by a new laptop.

Computer: Lenovo Z50-75.
Graphics card: Amd Radeon R7 Graphics.
Processor: AMD FX-7500 Radeon R7, 10 Compute Cores 4C+6G, 2100 Mhz
Ram: 6GB
Windows 10 Home 64 bit.

The laptop you have is a decent laptop, but unfortunately does not have a graphics card. A graphics card is a separate circuit board that is removable and replaceable on a desktop computer. Your graphics are integrated into the laptop. You would have to buy a laptop that was specially designed to play games or buy a gaming desktop. Either option would be very expensive and you said you're on a limited budget.

✔ Best Answer
Here's a review of the FX-7500 R7 CPU/Graphics:

Try lowering in the in-game screen resolution setting & experiment with the other settings using either medium or low. You can also try running the game in a window rather than full screen. Obviously these changes will lower the visiual quality of the game but the FPS should increase.
