I am getting ready to max out my old acer (finally).  I think it has the t7500 in it now.  I am wondering will it run the 9900?  I know one person here previously installed the t9500 cpu and it worked. Thoughts would be welcome.

Oh, sorry.  It's the 2007 model acer aspire 7720.  there was a big writeup on it on the old forum.  I am going to do the 17" panel replacement to UHD 1080, upgrade the processor and increase the ram to 8gb.

I think I found out that the t9500 is the fastest this system will acknowledge. I still need to find the HD screen for it too.  The ram and keyboard are easy to get, but the screen, I have to make sure I buy the correct one.
