Was wondering if I should upgrade my CPU on my laptop, atm I got the i7 2630qm, and was wondering if I should get the Intel Core i7 3940XM.

My main concerns is if the pc could handle 55w processor, and if it's really worth the 500$.

Save your money and invest in a new laptop, GPU will hold you back anyways and that is not upgradeable... the OEM BIOS is horrible also, so there is no way to tweak anything... had my G74 for a 2.5 years, another 2 years and I will upgrade, by then USB 3.1 and DDR4 will be standard..... Good Luck

If you don't already, get an SSD... that will give a nice boost....
