Sadly, there is very little one can do from a CPU perspective here. Intel altered the socket in the next generation of chips they made. So there is no CPU upgrade possible, other than what Apple sold the system with.

How about focusing on upgrading the RAM if you have less that 8 GB installed. If you are doing a lot of graphics stuff you may want to up the RAM to 12 or 16 GB.

The other direction here is storage. How about replacing your current HD with a Hybrid SSHD or adding a second drive I this case a SSD to replace your optical drive.

Both of these will offer much more improvement in performance than the CPU upgrade.
