Re: Need help upgrading my laptop!
you're not gonna like this answer, but basically what you need to do to increase performance is buy a new laptop. Laptops are extremely hard to upgrade with the exception of ram, hard drives, and the cpu, all of which upgrading won't give you improved performance. The only thing you'll really see an upgrade from is the GPU and the GPU is generally soldered onto the mainboard, or it's a proprietary connection and you won't be able to upgrade it. SO either enjoy it where it's at, run lower settings with a lower res, or sell the laptop and get something that's more powerful, but that seems to be a pretty high end setup so I wouldn't try and sell it to improve performance.
If you really want gaming performance get a desktop.
