You can as long as your swapping it out with an acer Vbios video card.. thats exactly the same as the one it came with. 

You cannot upgrade it due to the fact that A. Acers are very cheap Laptops.

B. Since acer only puts in the required heatsink, any card with a higher TDP would simply burn itself up

What do you mean with "acer Vbios video card"? and if the cooling would be a problem I could get a cooling pad or whatever it's called, and just use it when i'm gonna play games.

It would burn itself up. A cooling pad would not do it. Period. If it was that simple. Everyone would be doing it.

You cannot upgrade the video card on that laptop. If you want laptops with upgradable cards. With actual heatsinks to support those cards. You want.

MSI

Most cooling pads are basically aren't that effective when your gaming as those temperatures rise really quickly and those fans on the cooling pads can't keep up with the rise of the heat. Also upgrading the graphics card requires you take the laptop fully apart so you can get to the motherboard which the graphics card is attach to and you would also need some thermal paste to reapply the cpu/gpu heatsink.
