    the highest it supports is the x9000 but you cant use the unlock multipliers so it does you no good. the t9500 is the same as the x9000 but with locked multipliers. the t9300 and t8300 are good alterinatives
    id suggest not upgrading it. and save for a fresh lappy. how much ram is installed? if less than 3 i would upgrade to 4.

    What a find, I have the Aspire 5720 with the T5250 cpu. Is the information also valid? or does this version have a smaller cooler etc?
    Can anyone suggest where in UK I could get a new cpu?
    I have upgraded it to a 320 WD Black 7200rpm drive and have doubled the RAM to 4GB or DDR2-667. CPU is all thats left, just a shame its on board graphics

    fastest bang for buck would be the t9300.
    although the t5850 i swapped for $70 is pretty good too! 1m superpi in 28 sec.

    you can also get the T7300 for around £30 to £40, That's $50 to $65.
