    What are you using the laptop for? If for gaming, you don't want to ever waste money upgrading a laptop. It'll cost much more to upgrade it than to buy a new laptop with better specs.

    Hi- Go here: and view the "Build Guides" and start your own "System Build". When you do, it will tell you what is incompatible (with over a 90 percent accuracy rate) and it will also tell you from which e-tailer you can likely get the right components for the cheapest price, whether it is Amazon, Newegg, Superbiiz, NCIX, etc.

    After that, you might come back here and show us your picks and someone here will likely double-check the compatibility of all the parts and may even make some suggestions that will enhance your build at a comparable cost.

    Any preliminary questions?
