Sony Vaio VGN CR-220E

Hey I have a a sony vaio vgn cr-220e and I play a lot of shoot em up games. Ex. Call of duty, Command and conquer company of heros etc. I have a 2.0 ghz processor, and 2 gig of ram. I was wondering what I could upgrade on my laptop so I could do more gaming. I know I could use a bigger processor, most games for compatible with vista require atleast a 2.2ghz processor and I would like another gig of ram, but since it has only two slots would i have to buy 2 2 gig ram sticks rather than the 2 1 gig ram sticks. And is my video card upgradeable?

Haha!

I had such dreams too with one of my old Vaio. I really wanted to upgrade the processor and graphic chipset. Turns out that the latter is impossible (it was soldered to the motherboard - it wasn't a graphics card, just an all-in-one chip), as for the processor I was able to take it out but I ran into several problems:
1) vaio added electronic components to the motherboard that made higher CPU speeds unachievable even if the motherboard's cipset (VIA) was able to do that.
2) the cpu maker (AMD in my case) kept telling me that their mobile cpu were custom designed for that specific laptop, so new cpu would be incompatible. Also mobile CPUs are, apparently, only sold to laptop makers, unlike OEMs... (eBay but at ur own risk!).
3) When buying a new CPU, u need to check factors such as the number of pins (mobile cpu are much smaller), voltage, current, wattage and heat dissipation (very important, ur current heat sink was designed for ur current cpu).

But maybe things have changed now. In my case, I could only upgrade the RAM and the hard-drive to larger and faster versions, and the difference was quite significant difference. Faster booting and better internet experience.
