    Alright, So I have the Original 1st Generation MacBook 1.83 GHz. I have 2GB of RAM in it. The graphics card is crap in this thing and I wanted to know if I am able to like get a New motherboard with a faster CPU and better Video Card on it? I dont mean remove the CPU, I mean get a whole new motherboard.

    Your girlfriends place
    The connectors differ between generations. You're better off selling your current and getting a new one. It'll be cheaper in the long run.

    In the great white north
    You can upgrade up to 2.16 GHz processor and the graphics card would be the same. 2.2 and above and the case will be different, as well as connectors.

    Not that I know off but it simply is not worth it - you will need a new bottom case, fan, heatsink, speakers, bluetooth board, battery connector and invertor cable.....

    MUCH cheaper to sell your current model and buy a higher spec or refurb MacBook
