  1. Can Sony Comp. CPUs, be switched out?

    I have a pcvrx860 and really need to upgrade the processor. The current one is a 2.4ghz, with a foxconn fan and heatsink on top and i would like to replace it with this one or something like it, that would fit.

    It is the right pin type, but i still dont know if sony prebuilts can be upgraded. any help would be nice. thanks

    I just joined here, and dont know if this was an appropriate way to ask my ?, so please tell me if i did it ok.

    Find the exact model of your motherboard, and look on the Foxconn website what processors that mobo accepts. You may also need a BIOS update (if available from Sony! not from Foxconn).
    In theory it should work.
