I am looking to upgrade my son's PC for gaming

I am looking to upgrade the processor and graphics card along with anything else needed to get my son's PC up to gaming status. It has an AMD A10-9600 quad-core APU processor and Radeon R-5.

Here is the service manual for that model line of laptops.


Be aware that many laptops are NOT upgradeable to the CPU or the graphics.  I see no mention of the CPU being upgradeable but perhaps the graphics can, as it is listed as discrete graphics which usually means it can be removed and/or replaced.


This is not a user/hobbyist upgrade.  It might be advisable to consult with skilled techs to investigate the possible options and the cost to do the work.
