Upgrading a Dell Inspiron N5110

Hello, I currently own a Dell Inspiron N5110, and the model I own, has an Intel i5-2450m @ 2.5GHz, 6Gb of RAM, a 500Gb HDD, and Intel HD 3000 Graphics.

Now, I have noticed that there are motherboards out for sale ,with the Nvidia GT525m graphics processor, that I can easily get, and install. (I have disassembled my laptop before, and reassembled it, so it's not hard for me to do). What I was hoping to do, was take my current motherboard out, and replace the processor, harddrive, and all those bits onto the motherboard, and download the graphics drivers for the new GPU. Before I go out venturing for this, I was wondering, has anyone else done this, and can give tips, or is this impossible, so I don't go ahead wasting money.
