    If Svet had done it for you it's usually tweaked already by him. There isn't much you can do besides tweaking your processor, which you stated that you don't want to go for.

    Sorry bro. I did never do that. For sure you can plug a hard drive, but maybe you have to settle it with some american tape. In order to replace a DVD, maybe this can suit your request: https://www.ebay.com/itm/New-HL-CT4...021524?hash=item33afc16e14:g:4EoAAOSweW5VS4iq

    I never changed it, so I don't know how easy it could be.

    You probably have the GT70 0ND system and you can use memtest from an USB flash drive to boot and verify for errors. For GPU upgrade, you can have several options available.

    A 970M + 256GB SSD + 16GB RAM is around 400$ + 80$ + 150$ = 630$. It is a reasonable price for such an update, but are you sure is it not better to think buying a new laptop?

    The 970M is the best option for the upgrade. I think the 980M/1060 are too expensive for a laptop upgrade instead of a new laptop
