Hi Shriradhya,


The Processor is not possible to upgrade as it comes integrated on the motherboard. You can upgrade the RAM to max 16GB (2x8GB) of DDR4 2133Mhz. You need to use Sodimm sticks (which are usually used in notebooks). There is no slot to place a graphics card .


it will never be able to play games well as it has integrated graphics and even placing more RAM in the system will not have much effect in games.


The best option would be to build a small gaming rig or look at the HP Omen PCs if you are interested in gaming.


Hope it helps,
