Hello!!

I currently have tis laptop model Toshiba Satellite c55-A-1GK, with this specs

cpu : Intel Core i3 3110M @ 2.40GHz,
ram : 4.00GB Single-Channel DDR3 @ 798MHz
graphics Intel HD Graphics 4000 (Toshiba)
1023MB NVIDIA GeForce 710M (Toshiba)

So , i was wondering if I could upgrade it to something better,other than my ram,if I bought a newer graphics nvidia geforce graphics card.

Is it possible ?What is your advice?

Thank you so much!

the best u can upgrade is your ram and hdd to ssd.its a no for the graphic card since its soldered and a part of the motherboard.if u want a new graphics card for your laptop,getting a new laptop is the only solution.PS: only few older high end models like dell,alienware,msi uses mxm type card for their gpu.even then u will run into few problem with bios,heatsink if its not plug and play.not to mention the price of the card itself could exceed your laptop price.
