Need advice about upgrading RAM and SSD

Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have used this laptop for 3 years now and lately, I've been wanting to upgrade it but I know nothing about RAM or SSD. So I need some advice about what should I get for my laptop.

 

Here are some specs:

Windows 10 Home Single Language 64-bit Version: 18362.295

Intel(R) Core(TM) m3-6Y30 CPU @ 0.90GHz

System memory is 4GB with 2 slots, each has a 2GB Elpida 1600MHz.

 

So I want to upgrade it for better gameplay (I play The Sims 4) and I'm wondering what should I get for my laptop. I want to upgrade the memory to at least 8GB, I don't know much about SSD so I need some advice about what brand and how much I need to upgrade.

Really appreciate it if anyone can help me.

Thanks in advance.

Hi @Gingalaxy

 

Thanks for replying. 

 

HP Pavilion x360 11-k118tu has 8 GB DDR3L-1600 SDRAM (1 x 8 GB) RAM and 500 GB 5400 rpm SATA Hard Drive installed on it. 

 

You may install a 128 GB, TLC SSD. Part# 809555-001.

 

Refer to page# 37 and 38 from the Service Guide for more information. 

 

The RAM cannot be upgraded as your PC supports up to 8 GB onboard system memory.

 

Hope this helps! Keep me posted.
