Hello again all :)
I have the Asus G73J with i5 450M CPU dualcore.
I want a highend i7 CPU with 4 cores, is it possible to change it, and will it work?
If any, please tell me what kinds of CPU's that can be placed in :)

Yes you can. Have you verified whether you have 2 or 4 memory slots?

I have 2 memory slots i think. What has that to do with it?

You can use any 1st Gen i5/i7 chip, like the 720/740 QM, 840QM or 920XM as some examples. No Sandybridge for you, however.
