How to upgrade my HP Pavilion g6 into a gaming laptop

So, I require some help with this, as I have not been able to find a solid answer. So, I have an HP Pavilion g6, and I try to play games on it. Suffice to say, it's bad. So I would like to upgrade it to at least be able to run a gamecube or ps2 emulator at a decent framerate, as when it has just one character on screen, it runs at roughly 15 fps, and when more than one character are on screen, then the crap hits the fan. I think it's a bad sign when it struggles to run AdVenture Capitalist. I'm currently running 4 GB ram, an AMD A8-4500M APU 4 CPU processor, and an AMD Radeon HD 7640G GPU.

Something that I would like to be considered is that I am not the wealthiest person, and have little money to spare, but I would still like to have good quality, so if I would be able to get something in the middle, that would be the best. I would also like to upgrade my cpu to an intel one, as I know that emulators run better with an intel cpu. Honestly, I would try to find this myself, but I can't find any information on this myself.

Thanks in advanced

  1. The reason you cannot find any information on this is because it's not possible. You cannot swap out your AMD to an Intel processor. The best option for you is to save up money and build a budget desktop PC for what you need it to do.

    Laptops are not designed to undertake extensive upgrades, the best you can do on most is add RAM and change to an SSD (Unless it has one already). As for emulators, I don't know. But it goes back to what I said, there isn't much you can do in this scenario.
