I have Acer Aspire v5-573g laptop with the following specs:


Intel Core i5-4200U CPU @ 1.60 Hz - 2.30 Hz (with intel turbo boost)


NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M

500 GB hard drive


The laptop was bought in 2013. I am looking to upgrade for the purpose of improved gaming. The laptop runs many new games quite decently (Fallout 4, Dying Light f.ex.) but could be better. Any suggestions for what hardware to get?

I don't think you can upgrade that laptop much if at all. I would look into building a desktop.
Do you have a monitor and keyboard?
What is your budget?

Upgrading a laptop...is not really part of the thinking that goes into manufacturing such, IMO.


There are only so many components that are part of a laptop...which can be easily replaced...RAM, hard drive.


If you are serious about gaming...I would suggest a desktop system, where components can be easily upgraded for all system hardware functions, one at a time, if need be.
