I currently have a HP envy dv7-7230us notebook. It is stock and came with a A8-4500M with Radeon™ HD 7640G CPU. I am simply wanting to know what my CPU upgrade options are and what type of socket the CPU takes. And if it would help my gaming hobby if i were to replace the 750 gig 5400rpm hard drive with a solid state drive. I currently have 6 gigs or Ram. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I can play most games on medium settings as is. But i lagged hard core when i went to play fallout 4. Im assuming that i just need to upgrade my processor and maybe go from 6 to 8 gigs of ram. Just looking for the best way to get performance without going all out and spending a ton of money. What ever would help me out the most.
