Default Need help with picking out a processor upgrade.

Hello everyone. First post on the forums. Hopefully I can get the help I am looking for. I am looking to upgrade my processor. Reason why is because I currently run heavy duty programs, such as sony vegas (video editing software) and Adobe Photoshop. Photoshop isnt the problem, The sony vegas seems to be running at it's max specially when I try to preview the video i just editing (frames per sec lag). Anyway below are my specs and I am looking to go with a better processor. If I have to stick with the AMD brand I have no problem as long as it performs. I have the sandra program if any more info is needed. Im basically looking for an answer on which processor to get that will fit. I know my laptop is upgradable as i called gateway support and the lady at customer service support said yes it is upgradable, but wouldnt tell me to what type of processor she recommends ( I needed to contact a tech)... Thank you!
