Wanting to know if it's possible to upgrade my CPU and to what extent.
Toshiba Qosmio x305-q705
Windows 7 64bit

Processor and Chipset
Intel® Centrino® 2 Processor Technology featuring:
Intel® Core™ 2 Duo Processor P7350
@ 2.0GHz, 3MB L2 Cache, 1066MHz FSB
Mobile Intel® PM45 Express Chipset

I doubt the GPU can without a whole new motherboard, but if by chance it can here's the specs on that. My bottleneck is at the CPU right now though.:
PCI-Express™ x16 graphics subsystem, featuring:
o NVIDIA® GeForce® 9700M GTS, 512MB GDDR3 discrete
graphics memory, plus up to 1791MB dynamically allocated
shared graphics memory using NVIDIA® TurboCache™
o Total Available Graphics memory 2303MB (64-bit version)

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Possible? Yes.

Where to find CPU models supported? on the Toshiba website, no one else can tell you for sure. You should be able to find a list of different CPUs that could have come with your laptop in the manual.

Disassembly instructions for your notebook? on the Toshiba website.

Where to get a new notebook CPU? I have no clue other than ebay or similar sites for used ones. And they will cost way too much for the performance increase.
