Hi guys,
with my current system(Notebook / Laptop ASUS Gaming 17.3'' ROG G771JM, FHD, Intel® Core™ i7-4710HQ (6M Cache, up to 3.50 GHz), 8GB, 1TB, GeForce GTX 860M 4GB) i get around 20 fps. Do you think if buying 8 Ram GB and a SSD to put p3d on it would help with the frames(i am looking for a constant 30 fps).
Thank you!

I doubt that you'd get the results that you want, but of course it all depends on settings. You'll still be limited by the CPU and GPU.

On my system (see sig), I'm CPU bound with high settings and therefore lock my FPS to 20 to save on resources. I'd never be able to hit a constant 30 FPS unless I lowered my settings quite a bit which I'm not willing to do. Note that I have 32gb of RAM and a 4790k @ 4ghz on all cores with 4.4ghz in turbo.

It wouldn't hurt to review LM recommended hardware requirements.

An SSD won't give you better FPS, but will help load times.

The 860M is probably your primary limitation.
