Laptop upgrading

I have a HP Pavilion dv4-3001TX. Upgraded to 6GB of RAM, making it's 4GB usable when account all the graphics memory, Windows 7 stuff and background music. So now the only bottleneck is the Core i3-390M. Luckily, it's socket(ed) G1 or rPGA 988. But I don't know if the laptop it is compatible with Core i5-5x0M? Gonna use it for another while.

I think it is, I would update the bios to be sure. Also I would jump straight to one of the quad core i7s for rPGA 988

It's the latest BIOS, but I'm afraid they locked it down.

An i7... that makes others a bottleneck. i5 is enough, I think

having the GPU as a bottleneck is far better for games than a CPU bottleneck. you will have a bottleneck somewhere regardless, no matter what or how insignificant.
