Hello,

I have a Sager NP5792 (Clevo M570RU). I already upgraded the hard drive and was curious if I am able to upgrade the Ram as well. If I am able to what type of ram can I buy? Also is it possible to upgrade the video card? Finally is there any other part of my laptop that I can upgrade, (or worth upgrading)? If so, do you have any recommendations of what upgrades I should buy. Price isn't a real issue. Below is the specs to my specific laptop.

Thanks,
Zoltain

Go to HERE and run the Crucial online scanner.
This will give you the exact memory configuration for your system.
You do not have to buy the memory from there, but write down the information and if you need assistance in purchasing the upgrade memory GTG can assist with suggestions also.

From what I gather I already have the maximum memory my computer can handle. Is it worth buying better memory? If so what should I get?

Here is what Crucial said I have: Currently installed memory:

DDR PC2-5300

Each memory slot can hold DDR2 PC2-5300 with a maximum of 2GB per slot.*

You are maxed out and buying faster memory will not make that much of a difference.
I would say save your money at this point because memory is not going to help you much now.



Also upgrading a video card on a laptop is not possible without replacing the motherboard in most cases. Not worth the expense you would be seeing. Cheaper to replace the laptop actually.
Unless you are pushing the free space on your HD I see nothing you really need to upgrade at this point.

You are welcome. I hope I have helped you and answered your question so you have a better understanding now. Laptops are not like desktops so you just can't upgrade the video and sound like you can on a desktop. The sound is easier to do but the video is still impossible to do without replacing the mobo.
Thank you for allowing me to assist you and for the patience you have shown.
Thank you for choosing GTG for assistance and I hope you will look around and enjoy the wealth of knowledge here from not only the staff but all the members.

I have the same board in my CyberPowerPC laptop bought in 2008. I have also taken the backside off to clean many times. I have noticed the video card is connected into a PCI-X slot on the motherboard, and is not directly fabricated onto the board. This should make it possible to upgrade the video. As far as where to purchase a new one to fit the case, I do not know. But I know there are and were faster video card options available. The only thing I am unsure of, is whether the BIOS will be happy with any hardware changes or not.

Try starting HERE at CyberPowerPc's contact page Spadam. Give them the model number of the laptop and they should be able to direct you in the right direction. :D
