How much of an improvement would i see?

First of all my laptop spec is as follows:


HP Pavilion 15-n270ea 

AMD Quad-Core A4-5000 APU

4 GB 1600 MHz DDR3L SDRAM 

AMD Radeon HD 8330 Graphics

750 GB 5400 rpm SATA



I'm thinking of upgrading my ram from 4gb to 8gb and getting a 250gb ssd but im not sure how much that woud improve the laptop. i mainly want to upgrade it because it can't handle most games on lowest settings. im not sure what i actually need to make it run games better so any advice would be appreciated. thanks

Hi HarrisonJ,


This computer looks like it is a newer system so you would receive a lot of extra speed from the SSD and upgrading the RAM on a newer system like yours is always a good idea. This system can actually be upgraded to 16GB, so 4GB is most likely the bare minimum for it. If you order directly with us we do have a 45 day return period for a full refund, so you could always try these upgrades and return them if they are offering the speed you expected. Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns.
