Where can I buy a replacement processor?

iMac 21.5 Mod 2010

My iMac has the 3.06GHz processor and I'd like to replace it with the 3.2GHz i3 or 3.6GHz i5 processor. I already have 16Gb of ram and will be adding an SSD so I'm thinking I might as well upgrade the processor at the same time.

This link wasn't exactly the same situation but was encouraging so I'm trying to decide if it's worth it.

Upgrade iMac Intel Core i3 CPU to Core i7

I tried shopping for replacement processors and had trouble finding sites that sell them. Help in finding a site that sells replacement processors would be appreciated.
