I’m not a tech person and idk where to ask so here I am seeking for your wisdom.
I have a low/mid-tier gaming laptop (ASUS GL553VD) that I have been using for three years.
Here are the specs:
CPU: Intel Core i7-7700HQ
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 (4GB GDDR5)
DISPLAY: 15.6”, Full HD (1920 x 1080)
STORAGE: 1000GB HDD + 250 GB SATA SSD
RAM: 8GB DDR4
WEIGHT: 2.50 kg (5.5 lbs)
I’m planning on upgrading:
250GB SSD to a Kingston 1TB A2000 M.2 2280 Nvme Internal SSD PCIe
8GB RAM to 16GB by adding another Crucial CT8G4SFS824A 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 SODIMM 2400MHz CL17 1.2V Single Ranked Single Stick Notebook Laptop Memory
Additionally, I’ve done some research and found that I have to replace the existing SSD with a new one through a SSD Enclosure: ORICO M.2 NVMe SSD Enclosure, USB 3.1 Gen 2 (10 Gbps) to NVMe PCI-E M.2 SSD Case Support UASP for NVMe SSD Size 2230/2242/2260/2280
(However, I’m really not a tech person so it would be great and I would REALLY REALLY APPRECIATE IT if someone could tell me if it will actually work before I purchase these items)
My main question is, is it worth upgrading the RAM and SSD, especially in 2020? I’ve watched a review on this laptop which mentioned that GTX 1050 is pretty outdated and I should buy a new and better laptop instead of upgrading this old one.
I’m sure there are a lot of tech enthusiasts on Ozbargain so pls help me out. Thank you so much in advance.
