Hi /g I wanted some advice. I'd like to upgrade me laptop, but I'm not sure what I should focus my upgrade on. I was think more of a video card. When play a game like planet side 2 of gta 4 I get choppy fps on the lowest settings. Any suggestions?

You can't upgrade either. Get Fusiontweaker and look into overclocking your CPU, that is the best you can do with that. I personally have overclocked my A6-3400M from 1.4ghz/2.1ghz turbo to 2.2ghz/2.9ghz turbo, it makes a significant difference in games and also improves battery life, however it's still shit gaming on this laptop compared to my desktop, so it rarely gets used for that.

My laptop is a fuckton more shitty than yours and I can play gta 4 on near lowest just fine. Check your drivers.

you can swap out video cards as long as its not integrated, which mine isnt

you should get a new computer. Planetside 2 is CPU heavy

>>30002947 APU by definition have integrated graphics, which is why they don't need to specify if it's integrated or not
