ROG ASUS G75VW trying to upgrade

I have an old ROG ASUS from 2012 with outdated components. I am looking to upgrade it but I am not exactly sure if it is possible or how to go about it, I will have the specs attached but I can say that it is Running DDR3 8gb, a intel i7 and a GTX 660M. What are my options and I have to go with affordability here as I have to save the money up go get each part due to being of work indefinite.

If your looking to upgrade, you'd probably have to do the full thing, maybe besides the case if it has standard atx/matx holes.  In about a month when am5 releases, there might be some price drops on am4 id be looking out for

I'm dumb its a laptop

You won't really find an upgrade for this CPU for the socket it's in. Yeah even though it's one of the few PGA laptop CPUs, it's a higher end i7 of its generation so there aren't any processors available that can make a large jump in performance.

 

The graphics chip is soldered onto the board, you won't be stuffing a desktop graphics card into this laptop.

 

The best upgrades that this could take is an upgrade to 2x8GB of ram, and an SSD in place of the hard drive.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

Trash beauty:

Xeon X5550RX 570 4GB (defective) -Fattydove Racing 240GB - WD Blue 320GBHP Z400 - 6x2GB DDR3 1066 - EVGA 450W3

 

How many watts do I needATX 3.0 & PCIe 5.0 spec, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

Basically new laptop thats about it if you want better gaming performance.

 

If it's for web and office stuff changing the hdd for a ssd and adding 8gb of ram would help nicely.
