Re: Lenovo G580 20157 Upgrades help.

Hi there. Here's a list of i series processors you can upgrade to... your motherboard supports the PPGA988 or FCPGA988 sockets, and the processors below are pulled directly from Lenovo's parts list. The i5-3210M seems to be the best option.


For memory, you can upgrade to a max of 16GB of PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3 RAM. Your system board has two slots and supports dual-channel, so I would recommend getting 2 sticks of 4GB, like this one:


The graphics card is either integrated (from the processor) or soldered on the system board, so you can't upgrade that.


Hope that helps!
