Can I upgrade


Dec 2, 2008
I have owned my Asus N53SV-DH51 for about 10 months now and I am curious if this is upgrade-able. I know the memory and hard drive can be upgraded and or changed, I guess the real question is can i upgrade the processor and graphics. I was going to pull apart, but figured i would ask before i do anything. I have built a couple desktops in the past and I know this is a little different, has anyone had any experience with this specific model?

I have been googling for about 2 hours and have not found to many relevant threads and then I downloaded CPU-Z and got some info, wasn't sure if any of this would help, but I figured I would post it anyways for my processor and chipset.

Any help is appreciated thanks in advance
