    Hi all,

    I bought a laptop from pcspecialist here in the UK and it came with the following specs:

    Operating System
    Windows 10 Home 64-bit

    CPU
    Intel Core i3 4170 @ 3.70GHz 50 °C
    Haswell 22nm Technology

    RAM
    12.0GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 798MHz (11-11-11-28)

    Motherboard
    Clevo P770ZM-G (SOCKET 0)

    Graphics
    Generic PnP Monitor (1920x1080@75Hz)
    2047MB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M (CLEVO/KAPOK Computer) 47 °C

    Storage
    465GB TOSHIBA MQ01ABF050 (SATA) 28 °C

    Optical Drives
    No optical disk drives detected

    Audio
    Realtek High Definition Audio


    (Specs were taken from speccy program)

    I am wondering if i can upgrade my processor to an i7 decent enough for gaming and possibly the graphics card to a nvidia gtx 980m.

    I have seen on youtube other people with these setups on the same p770zm_g motherboard, but after emailing pcspecialist they said the motherboard cant handle an i7 processor...... this confused me.

    I opened the laptop up and it has a desktop cpu, which i presume means it can be upgraded.

    I am lost at this point and require someone with better knowledge than myself and pcspecialist to clear things up for me.

    thank you for your help.

    So a i7 4790 and a gtx 1070 pascal card would be a decent setup?
