    You need to get a new laptop if you intend to game. There is nothing you can really do to make that into a gaming laptop.

    If you intend to do any real gaming on a laptop. You will be spending upwards of $1,000 just to do so. It's much better to just build a desktop for the task.

    'Gaming' on a laptop requires NVIDIA GT640M, or AMD HD7850 or higher.

    As above, $1000+. A desktop version of this will cost you $500. (not counting huge monitors etc)
