Hi everyone, I just bought a 6 year old ROG asus laptop. Its been upgraded with six gigs of RAM and a new"ish" nvidia GPU. My only problem is it has a Intel mobile core 2 duo P8700. My question is, can I upgrade this? Ive done some poking around, and I know it has to be compatible with my motherboard(?) My motherboard is ASUSTeK Computer INC G72GX, if that helps. I am want to upgrade to intel i5 or i7 if possible. Any help would be greatly appreciated, Thanks!
