  1. Hello,
    Thank you for taking the time to read this message.
    I have a Toshiba "Qosmio" G50 with a P7350 2.0 GHz CPU + 4 Gigs of RAM

    I really do not know the technical data on the machine such as FSB or Max RAM etc., Instead of building my own machine I took the lazy way out and am paying the fiddler now.

    If you are familiar with laptops could you tell me what CPU upgrade would be compatable?
    I am looking to get higher than 2.4 GHz if possible.
    I have heard of a T9800 (2.9 GHz.) or something like that.
    Any information will be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you,
    Rick

    Find the FSB (Front-side Bus) speed and pinout for the P7350 2.0 GHz CPU and make sure the replacement CPU matches these specs

    I hope you're prepared to disassemble that laptop; it's gonna be pretty hard to install the new CPU once you get it. That laptop model seems to be specialized too (it apparently comes with a Cell processor), so I'd be wary of any CPU upgrade you get.

    If you do it, have a professional install it; your chipset seems to support the P9700 and the T9600, both of which are within the range you're looking for.
