Are you an avid gamer? You shouldn't need a serious upgrade like this unless you you are using heavy graphics. If you are looking to game, a PC is a overall better choice by comparison. The parts are much cheaper. What's the total cost running you for this machine?

Well nice specs here in this laptop but i think that isn't i7 1.6GHz a bit slow ??? Coz this specification are of a gaming laptop and with this processor, your games would easily bottleneck it because most of the games nowadays usually consume power from max 2 cores. So, it would easily bottleneck that processor. And i suspect the performance of graphic card also.Its ATI 5730 mobility series, so it would be delivering lesser power than expected. So, do check the graphic card also. But i think the main problem is the processor. So, have a look at other options too.
