I am largely a PC hardware "moron" so please bear with me if my inquiry is abit on the ridiculous side. However, I am thinking of purchasing a Sony Vaio model VGC-RA820G. This model utilizes Intels 915p chipset/board and sports a Pentium 4 @3.2Ghz. I do not currently know the motherboards manufacturer.
My question is that I wish to upgrade the current processor to a Pentium D. Preferrably either the 820 @ 2.8Ghz or the 830 @ 3.0Ghz Model. Both chips (P4 and D) run on LGA 775 type motherboards. Is anything, like I am suggesting, even remotely and safely possible?
The reason I wish to pursue this route is because I have found a pretty good deal on this Vaio RA model. But unfortunately it does not sport the CPU I am quite looking for. Thanks in advance for any help!
