]hey guys
 
ive been sruggling years playing dayz and ark on a crappy 9 years old pc
 
now i upgraded my graphic card and power supply last year to a gtx 960 and (700 watt, was needed to support this card they said)
now i just think they sell me things i don't need since i don't know much about computers
 
it did run alot better but i stil get alot of stuck screen and that crap so i think upgrading my cpu wil fix the bottleneck
 
did searc my cpu and it said it can't be upgraded without a new motherboard. is this true?

Unfortunately, upgrading CPU to something much better is out of question without motherboard change. So not much you can do about that one with low budget.

 

For second question, laptops are pretty much out of my knowledge area.
