Well, you would most likely have to change the CPU, Motherboard and RAM, however, if you go for a really cheap alternative, you might be able to use the same RAM. It really depends what you already have...
Unfortunately if you were to do this you would have to reinstall windows.
But the thing is mate, even if you were able to track somewhere down that still sold Socket A CPUs, there would be no point anyway. The CPU you have is basically as fast as they got for that socket, so you wouldnt be able to find a better one anyway.
The only option if you want to upgrade is to get a new motherboard etc.
