    How feasible is repower a Core 2 Duo, GM965 chipset laptop?


      Hi community. I am really confused about this, i hope you can help me.

      I own a xpsm1330, purchase in the 2007, it has a intel T5450 1.66 GHz core 2 duo processor, Intel GM965 chipset, Corsair 4GB (2x2GB) DDR2 800MHz ( now runing @667 limited by the chipset) and Windows 8.1 x64

      I´ve thought about repower it whith T9500, 2.6 GHz, FSB 800 MHz, L2 6 MB processor

      based in http://www.intel.com/Assets/PDF/datasheet/316273.pdf









      and http://www.cpu-upgrade.com/mb-Intel_(chipsets)/GM965_Express.html the best option for my xpsm1330 is the t9500, the max fsb of the cpu is 800 MHz but the max speed of the RAM is 667MHz limited by the gm965 chipset ...

      How feasible is the upgrade?

      I do not know if it is best option to retain my original cpu. What about bottlenecks ?

      A SSD is a good option?
