I want to start playing games on my acer laptop I have and i want to try to get the best graphics for it. Games already look pretty decent but i was wondering I could overclock on a laptop and if so what would be the best option for the system.

This is my system:

I would recommend against overclocking the CPU. The RAM could be somewhat overclocked, and the GPU also a little bit. Do you know what parts of the system are holding it back at all? And what temperatures everything is at?
Download MSI Afterburner, and configure the in game overlay (OSD) to show CPU usage (all cores), CPU temp, GPU usage and GPU temp. This will help us know how much needs overclocking, and how much we can overclock by.
Also remember that the battery will empty quicker on an overclocked system.
