I've had an Asus x551M for a while and though its great I want to upgrade it so that I can better enjoy games. I was wondering what motherboard, CPU,video card and memory I can get under $500 to game with great graphics.
Do you want to upgrade your laptop's parts? Because laptops parts aren't really upgradeable. No GPU upgrade, and a CPU upgrade is more trouble than it's worth (you're bound by socket compatibility) since there are no motherboard upgrades, pretty much. Memory and hard drive are upgradeable, though. Go with Siveshen's suggestion of a desktop, it's basically all you can get in laptops for that price.
