  1. You arent going to be able to upgrade anything other than the RAM in that laptop and you can't put a GPU in a RAM slot.

    Honestly, you're kinda stuck.
  2. GPUs don't plug in to your ram slot. You're not going to be able to do anything more than the ram in your laptop. Your best bet for a faster PC is either a new laptop or a desktop you can upgrade later on.
  3. i thought so i had a feeling but i thought id ask just in case ill look into buying a new pc
  4. system runs fine its just the graphics card that lets me down

    I was in the same boat when I had a laptop for school. I ended up building a PC and havn't looked back yet.
  6. yeah i was considering doing that but ive not really got much experience in building pc's / laptops appart from doing repairs on broken pcs at college
  7. Its really really not that hard I'll tell you right now.
