Windows 7: CPU Upgrade Gateway NV51B15u Series (LAPTOP)

CPU Upgrade Gateway NV51B15u Series (LAPTOP)

Hello. This may, or may not be the correct place to post this. But I simply had a question.

Please know that I do not currently have the computer with me, but I do know the specifications of the laptop, regarding my question.

I own a GateWay laptop NV51B15u series. I was simply wondering if I would be able to upgrade the processor to something more powerful. Currently it is 1.6 GHz, and I play a lot of PC games, so wanted something a bit faster, at least 2.4 GHz. I know this is not a gaming computer, though it has surprised me, and I love him. Even runs Dead Island full graphics, which surprised me. Anyways, my current processor is a 1.6GHz dual-core AMD E-Series.

Personally looking to run Rage, if I even can, not sure, have to test... But anyways, any help would be appreciated it. Thank you. Graphics card is decent, just CPU pisses me off. :P

Hello BlueBerryShadow, the Graphic card is all important when it comes to playing games and not the CPU. Without looking into whether it is at all possible for you to change the CPU (which is most likely not possible) I would personally doubt that it would make a lot of difference for you.
