Hello,

I just got 50 bucks for my birthday and I want to upgrade my system, but I don't know what component is worth upgrading. Realistically I can edge toward the $100 range, but less is better.

Current Specs:
-----------------------------------------
i7-2640m 2.8 dual core with 3.5 OC

8 GB RAM

2GB VRAM - nVidia Quadro 2000m

-----------------------------------------------

I'm currently thinking another 8 GB RAM to top it out at 16, but if you guys can think of something worth better while lemme know!

More about : dollars upgrade

You have sufficient ram.

Save up enough so you can replace the hard drive with a SSD. It will transform the laptop performance.
Expect to pay about $1 per gb. The best brands today are Intel and Samsung.

That spells out laptop to me. About the only thing you can realistically upgrade in that is the hard drive.

It's a w520 ThinkPad, you can upgrade all of the components. Two screws and your under the hood and it's like looking at a mobo :)
