Graphics cards on laptops can almost never be upgraded as its soldered onto the motherboard.

More RAM will not help you in gaming much either.

Nothing can be done unfortuntaetly.

While the Satellite Pro L750 does have a discrete graphics card, the problem is that the rest of the system, (particularly the PSU and cooling) is designed to support the original graphics card. anything stronger could cause the laptop to overheat as well as reducing the amount of time you could work on a single battery charge, and could cause instability in the whole system.

Give the exact model number of the laptop for a RAM upgrade.

It does look like RAM can be upgraded, but it won't help your gaming with that graphics card.

Not really, its not meant for gaming really. You could find the model number under the laptop, should be a longer than just L750.

Jip you can get upto 8GB of RAM by adding one 4GB chip. That will give you some improvement.

But do not expect to much in games.


Well thanks for the help... :) 

One last question, is my graphics card alright for now?


Depends on what you like to play. Crysis 3 for example, no.

Should be OK in Planetside 2 at some lowered settings. But yeah, its hard to say in some other newer games until you try them.
