What's the exact GPU? Just knowing the VRAM is insufficient.

It's unlikely you can make any meaningful upgrades; the vast majority of laptops only have RAM and hard drives with plausible upgrade paths.

Laptops are usually not worth it to upgrade, especially when you're looking to upgrade the GPU.

You'd end up spending nearly what a new, MUCH faster desktop would cost.

An i5-4210U + 830M should be able to "run" the vast majority of titles out there today, at 1366x768.

Not going to be cranking up the eye candy on a lot of games, but they should be able to be played - albeit probably at low settings more often than not.

The on glaring issue with that laptop is the 4GB RAM. You'd benefit from a minimum of 8GB there.

An SSD would be nice, over the 5400rpm drive - but it's not going to impact much beyond load/save times.
