    Question Can I upgrade my G73JH to play Devil May Cry V?

    Hey guys, I was wondering if it's possible to take apart my G73JH ASUS ROG laptop and upgrade it to have 2gb more ram and 2gb total vram. It doesn't meet the minimum requirements to play Devil May Cry V and I really want to play it because it's one of my favorite game series. Here's the screenshot of what I need to upgrade according to Can You Run It:

    Just want to know if this is possible so I can then find out what I need to buy and how to take it apart without messing it up. I'd like to continue using this laptop since it was $2000 (like 8-9 years ago, but still a lot of money for me because I'm in school currently) and not have to buy all new parts and a tower to build a PC that can run it. Thanks for any help!

    If you have to ask that question.....

    Answer = No

    It's an eight year old Mobile Intel® HM55 Express Chipset laptop.

    Load the game, if it works, play. If it doesn't then move on with your life.

    To clarify things for you a little more for you:

    Most laptops have the CPU and GPU integrated into the motherboard and are soldered in so it is not possible to replace them. With yours being so old the CPU will have a completely different socket to what is currently available anyway. There are other products on the market that you could install such as an external GPU such as the Asus ROG XG 2 station but you would still be limited by your CPU performance which would probably not be able to handle it and the cost of the eGPU's is quite high so realistically you would be better looking on amazon warehouse or similar for a new laptop on a deal that is more up to date.
