Thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you.

This is a laptop so an upgrade is not really feasible sorry, when you get a desktop computer the components can be updated, but not with a laptop.

What type of games does he want to play and I can recommend something for you

I don't know the games
Tech Support Specialist: Richard, Computer Specialist replied 7 months ago

ok, I would advise you get a desktop instead as this can be upgraded, and if you want one for gaming, this would be recommended.

this will run any game currently available

Is this within the budget you want to spend?

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
