    For Gaming ..(atleast be able to play latest games at medium settings)
  3. It's not looking good for any type of upgrade that makes sense. The CPU isn't bad at all, but the graphics card choice is very limited.
    You're probably better off selling the n5010 for what you can get and using that money plus what you have saved up for an upgrade and getting a better gaming laptop.

    For more specific info you probably want to hit the Dell forums.

    For a replacement you can get a Lenovo Y570 for under $800
    Sandy Bridge Core i5 CPU and GT 555M graphics
