Im having a hard time in game, is there anything I can to to help it run faster. I have a new hp laptop pavillion dv7?

intel core 7 q720 @1.6ghz
6 gig of ram
nvidia geforce gt 230m 1 gig

I set the graphics card to quality and get 700 on benchmark, then set to performance it goes up to 1050. the sys requirements said a core 2 duo at 2 ghz but i thought i was okay since i have the i7 with 8 processors. when i run the benchmark the cpu usage doesnt go over 20%. What can I do? Replace the processor or the gpu? Sucks cuz the guy at best buy told me this was the best they had lol so I paid the 1500 for it. can I overclock? if so how do i do that.

tks for any help.

Its probably the graphics card holding it back. "Mobile" graphics cards are always weaker than full power desktop versions and with a 230 you're rubbing on the edge of minimum requirement land.
