        With a netbook like that your limiting factor is your CPU/APU - 4gb of RAM is plenty.

        You cannot replace the CPU/GPU.

        Netbooks really aren't designed for gaming - They are fine for office tasks and web browsing but if you want a machine for gaming your best bet would be to sell the netbook and put the money towards a new machine.

        On a machine like that, upgrading the RAM beyond 4gb will make no difference so you would just be wasting money.

          Just MHO but the terms gaming and laptop should never be used in the same sentence...
          Just opinion.

          As patio stated you are usually better with a desktop for gaming, as you already have a netbook for portable stuff getting a nice desktop would probably be your best bet.

          For gaming the two best options would be to build it yourself (My choice) or to buy it from a specialised custom computer manufacturer such as Cyberpower.  If you find anything you would like an opinion on or would like advice on building one yourself I'd be happy to help.
