CPU Upgrade for ASUS G73jh

I currently own a ASUS g73jh with specs as follows:

CPU: Core i7 720QM
Memory: 8GB DDR3 1333MHz
Graphics: Radeon 5870m
Hard Drive: 320GB Western Digital Scorpio Black & 500GB Seagate Momentus 7200RPM

I bought the laptop at the beginning of the year and was happy with it then, but I do compile video every now and then and could benefit from a faster CPU. I was wondering if with a Bios update if I could upgrade to a 2630qm CPU or if I need to stick with the i7 8xx or 9xx CPUs.

Thanks

    Unfortunately the 2630 uses a different socket. So you are stuck with the 3-digit processors. Make sure the BIOS supports the chip before buying though
