Area-51m R1, upgrades ram, drive, CPU, GPU?

Alienware Area-51m

Alienware Area-51m


I was thinking to upgrade my Alienware Area-51m, but not just the RAM or the Hard Disk. I would like to upgrade the CPU [i7-8700] & the GPU [RTX 2070]. Is it possible [and worth it]? And what I can put?

To learn if it's possible, verify the system specs for supported CPU and GPU.

To know if it's worth it, calculating your upgrade cost, time spent and compare to the upgraded benchmark the system can give you in return.  If the demands and needs are met, it's worth it.  Otherwise, spend that upgrade cost into a newer system.
