I have an Acer Aspire E15 Start laptop, with the built-in motherboard, an Intel Celeron N2840 processor, and 8 GB of RAM (upgraded from the original 4 GB). Oh, and Intel HD Graphics card.

It's running fine, but it's having a hard time playing Minecraft on the lowest graphics settings, and just doing a standard size world (the world out in the distance is often significantly unrendered, and when I'm flying around in Creative mode, it BARELY keeps up).

I have 2 questions, therefore:

If it's simply a problem with the graphics card, what should I upgrade to (if an upgrade is even possible)?

Or:

If it really is that I need a better processor, then what would be the cheapest compatible processor that would remedy the situation? When it comes to processors for this laptop, what do I need to look for to ensure compatibility?

If it's possible to upgrade the system board, then is there an online store that you would recommend to me where I can get one? I'm just looking for something a little better than what I've got.

(Ultimately, I'm trying to avoid getting a whole new computer, as I really don't have the money for that.)
