Need help, so confused......with my x51

Hey guys, I actually have an x51 r5 Andromeda. Looking to upgrade it as opposed to buying a new gaming laptop solely because of money. I figured it would be cheaper to upgrade. Here are my specs:

Processor: Intel Core I7-2600 cpu @ 3.4GHz
Graphics card: Nvidia Geforce GT545
RAM: 6gig
I think the power supply is 240W but its definitely external.

Don't really know what the hell I'm doing and would appreciate all the help I can get before I go and spend money on equipment that wont end up being compatible with this pc. Been watching youtube vids of people upgrading their x51's video card with a gtx 970. Then I almost bought it on amazon but I figure I should post here before making any rash decisions.

Thanks for any help
