I am currently running a NVIDIA 240M and an i7 720QM.
I've read a bunch online but I can't seem to find a straight up answer on what the best performing option is for the money. the easier the install the better and I'm not concerned having to get a bigger power supply.
Thanks

CPU will be pretty easy to swap out if you want to. Just need to get the right one for your machine. I put a 920XM in an old M15x once. You definitely need a GPU upgrade though. You could try something like a 680m. You'd need a bigger power supply though. It's not hard to do but you will need a modded driver to make it work.
