Upgrading the CPU ( Pentium 4) to a 64bit chip
I have a Sony Vaio desktop computer, it's model number is PVC - RZ54G. It is similar the one is the video but it's newer.
Apple recently updated their software (iTunes) and their devices to 64bit. I want to keep my old pc but upgrade the CPU to run 64bit software.
How do I change the CPU on the motherboard? Is it a difficult process? What else would I need to upgrade so that things run effectively and efficiently?
I am currently running Windows XP SP3 and would like to install Windows 7 64bit because I can still use XP mode for my older software.
Also, I read the simply changing the motherboard would be the easiest way but Vaio's motherboards can't be swap out. Is this true?
