Should I upgrade parts for my laptop or buy a new one?

I have a dell inspiron 15 3521 with an i3 processor. I'm on a budget, so I'm debating whether to buy an i5 motherboard replacement or just shop for a faster computer all together. My goal is to be able to play KSP with no lag.

What is your budget?

Less than $200

How exactly are you planning to get a new computer all together then? Upgrade.

$300 would get you a decent little machine for games. But you won't be able to buy anything much better than what you have now with 200

save

Things to note:
- there is no guarantee that the new motherboard will fit correctly
- faster proc needs more heat reducing "stuff" which means the existing heat pipe and fans may not work
- video connector to screen may be different or the screen may not be supported

To be honest, you are better off saving and buying a new computer.
