I have a fairly basic build laptop. However, I was able to play Dota 2 quite smoothly throughout 2020 with low graphics & a little bit of heating here or there.

Since the 2021 updates, my laptop has been lagging a bit & heating as well...

I generally always had a random wifi disconnection issue every now and then (twice a month or so) etc.

So recently I have started planning to upgrade certain components of the Laptop

  1. RAM +8GB DDR3
  2. SSD +500 GB
  3. WIFI Card
Current Details:

Lenovo G50-80
--------------------
CPU:Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-5500U CPU @ 2.40GHz
Cores 2
Logical Processor 4
--------------------
WIFI Intel(R) Dual Band Wireless-AC 3160
--------------------
RAM 8GB DDR3
--------------------
GPU: INTEL(R) HD Graphics 5500
--------------------
HARD DISK:500GB
--------------------

Will the upgrade help in any way?

What are the best components I can buy for the upgrade?

Considering the below SSD & RAM components...

Samsung 8GB PC3L-12800 DDR3L 1.35V 1600 204-Pin SoDimm Laptop Memory Module M471b1g73bh0-yk0

Samsung 870 EVO 500GB SATA 2.5 inch (6.3 cm) Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) (MZ-77E500)

Any solid suggestions on WIFI card upgrade?

P.S: I apologize if I have added multiple questions together in the Memory group of questions
P.P.S: New here

This would be a massive upgrade for you, believe me. When i was using 8gb ram and HDD it was slow af so i decided to to upgrade it to 16gb ram along buying a 128gb ssd. And now i had the ability opening a bunch of chrome tabs without closing it, not only that you could open multiple softwares and you wont need to close it. And with that ssd i was able to boot my pc in less than 20 seconds instead of a whole minute. You bought a ssd would definitely help your pc to boot faster and help your programs to load faster, it only took me 1 second to load chrome.
Any way heres some wifi card your looking for:https://www.ebay.com/p/1050225132 https://www.amazon.com/Wireless-Card-2-4GHz-Intel-8265-NGW/dp/B07Q3NG5CZ/ref=sr_1_7?dchild=1&keywords=wifi+card+for+laptop&qid=1631868235&sr=8-7
