Solved Looking to Upgrade a Toshiba Satellite L635-S3030 to Game

November 29, 2012 at 07:46:31
Specs: Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit), IntelĀ® CeleronĀ® Processor P4600/8 gigs of RAM

I have a Toshiba Satellite L635-S3030 and I am hoping to upgrade it to perform as a proper gaming rig. So far, I have replaced the original 2 gigs of RAM with 8, and I am in the process of acquiring a brand new WD Black WD5000BPKT - hard drive - 500 GB - SATA-300 to replace the 250 GB hard drive that came with the computer. I was hoping to know if there is anything I can do regarding the processor, the video ram, the graphics card, etc. If anyone has any suggestions, I would love to hear. I have a few good friends who have worked with electronics for sometime, and are willing to help once I have the parts I need. I am trying to make this capable of running Saints Row the Third, which I received the base game for as an early Christmas gift, and got the full package for due to some keys given on steam. Thank you for your help. Game on!

P.S. Sorry if I appear incompetent, I'm quite new to this.

✔ Best Answer

There are very few components u can upgrade in a laptop and video card(only high end models) or intergrated video isn't one of them. Leave the system as it is and find atleast 1000 bucks for nice gaming laptop.

You know the real meaning of peace only if you have been through the war.

"I am in the process of acquiring a brand new WD Black WD5000BPKT"

Cancel the order, you'll just be wasting your money. Your laptop can NOT be turned into a gamer. The Intel HD graphics suck for gaming & are not upgradeable.

$1000 will get you a lower end gaming laptop or a kickazz gaming desktop.

There is no longer a computer to upgrade, rather one to replace. The harddrive worked fine in other comps, but my laptop won't accept it. The entire laptop's shot, regardless of what I put in it. Basically, I now have a new question, and it is this:

Do you think this, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ... , will have room for two harddrives? Also, what do you guys think the max on ram for this would be? I now have 8gigs accessible to increase the power with.
