Lenovo g580 i7-3520 M- upgrade RAM and GPU


I have Lenovo G580 running with i7-3520 M 2.9 GHz and also 6 GB RAM. I have a low grapchic card GeForce 610 M. I'm wondering if it's warranty upgading my RAM and GPU so the laptop run better. Should I do it? And if so, what is the better solution for me to buy?

Thank you

Upgrading the RAM is the best bet for a quick performance boost. Make sure to read the Maintenance Manual before you start, not only to make sure you can upgrade the memory but to see what types / sizes are supported. The parts listing is near the end of the manual, drill down to the memory sticks and note the type / size / timings and use that as a guide to purchase a replacement.

As for upgrading the graphics - that is a bit more tricky... It may be a "hard soldered" part, not a dock in card. You can contact Support and provide the notebook serial number (do not post online) and they can tell you more about video upgrade options.

Good luck.
