Hi, I have a HP Pavilion g7 Notebook PC and I want to know if i could possibly upgrade it to run the more needy games at a better fps, I mainly play online games not offline ones. So here is the specs.

 

Processor: AMD A8-4500M APU with Radeon™ HD Graphics    (4 CPUs), ~1.9GHz

Memory: 8192MB RAM

DirectX 12 (if that matters)

Windows 10

 

So if anyone could help me it would be much appreciated.

Unfortunately, no. Laptops aren't very upgrade able apart from the RAM in which you have enough already. If your budget was big enough (£400+), perhaps you could build a cheap gaming PC and use the laptop as a portable work thing?

I have done some research and couldn't I use this 

AMD A10-5750M AM5750DEC44HL Quad-Core 2.5Ghz 4MB Mobile CPU Processor Socket FS1 722-pin 35W HD 8650G

to replace my current one? would there be any problems with that?

The Processor might work, however that's risky, and you might be better off saving the money.

The main factor for gaming performance is the graphics card which doesn't look to be replaceable. For gaming on anything demanding, you need a relatively fast CPU that's quite recent and a much faster GPU. Neither are achievable here.

You'd be better off saving 400 - 500 to build a new gaming PC.

You might want to get an APU instead of a CPU because from the looks of it, it doesn't look like you have a GPU. What games are you planning to play?
