After 5 or so years, upgrading becomes a lot less economical than building a new system.

That is a very low end notebook. it most likely cannot be upgraded AT ALL and if it can you'd have to get the max CPU from gateway. But by the very nature of the way laptops are designed it would be a very very.small upgrade (if even possiblW), very expensive, and absolutely NOT worth doing. quite frankly it's not even worth.the time it would take to figure out if its possible.

You would be better off getting a newer one or building a desktop.

This Acer is probably ok for playing games at 720p and low settings. If you want to spend more than that, it's much more economical to get a cheap laptop to take to class (or whatever you're doing) -- or better yet, keep using your current laptop -- and build a gaming desktop.
