HELLO,
I want to use Autodesk Maya 2015 software for personal use on my HP Pavilion g6-2134tx...
so i thought to upgrade my pc to make sure it will run maya software smoothly without hanging..
My HP Pavilion g6-2134tx specs:
Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit
Intel core i3-2350M CPU @ 2.30GHz
Ram : 4GB DDR3
Graphics memory integrated : Intel hd graphics 3000
Graphics memory dedicated : Amd radeon hd graphics 7670m

So please prefer me whether i should upgrade any ram or cpu to work best on maya; sharp and smoothly.
I was saying what is most important upgrading cpu or ram,also which would be too costly...

You do have an interchangeable CPU so a swap is not an impossibility. According to the HP Pavilion g6 Notebook PC Maintenance and Service Guide (direct pdf link) in the section "Computer Major Components", page 17 it shows two Core i7 options, the Intel Core i7-3612QM and the Intel Core i7-3520M as far as upgrading ram, I will recommend using a memory finder tool from any of the ram manufacturers, here are a few to get you started:

http://www.corsair.com/en/memory-finder

The main reason for going that route is that they will guarantee compatibility. Plus, HP seems to be rather vague about how much ram the laptop will accept - the memory finder tools will know that also
