Upgrade Memory of B560

Hi,

 

I have got a B560 recently and I am quite satisfied with its performance. I have been playing a couple of games on it as well and they run smooth. To give you an idea of the specs:

 

Lenovo-B560

Corei3

3GB RAM

500 HDD

Intel Video Shared

 

I was wondering if someone could tell me whats the maximum capacity of memory that can be installed in this model (and what type). Will this help with the lagging problem I am facing in some "heavy" games.

 

Also, I would like to know if its a possibility to install an nVidia Graphic card into this model (I found after googling that some of these models have built-in in them).

 

Thank you for you time.

Hi,

 

I will be upgrading the memory soon. After the upgrade if I still face the lagging issues on games, I will let you know. Thanks for all your help.
