You can buy a new laptop or buy or build a new desktop. That's it. That laptop was never meant to play games and you cannot upgrade it.

Its probably set to max memory already, but that would not help at all. It is a very very poor GPU and not meant to run any games

You can't change the motherboard on a laptop except to the same exact board

It seems like you would want me to say that you can play pc games with that laptop, well I'm not going to lie.

PC games are meant to be played on a desk not on your lap. Don't expect to play games well with laptops, they are weak for pc gaming by design, too hot, less cooling and space.

If you can't afford a 1500 dollar gaming laptop pc, maybe you could afford a much better and much more affordable 750 dollar gaming desktop pc instead.

Laptops can also be used for gaming. High end gaming laptops have gpu as powerful as a gtx660. Though the ones that has great hardware in it are usually expensive as one would expect already

Maybe, but they run hot, are more prone to breaking and be almost double the price with a comparable gpu. Not to mention they're hardly serviceable/repairable at all.

As far as value goes, a good desktop gaming PC will cost about 250-400 dollars a year but a laptop would be like 600-800 dollars a year of life.
