AM2+ processors such as the Athlon X2 7750 ( I assume that's what you're talking about) are compatible with AM2 motherboards. However if the motherboard maker never released a new BIOS that will enable it to recognize the new processor, it won't work. Your going to need to contact emachine, or go to their website and look up your specific computer model/ or the specific motherboard model and see if they list support for the processor you want to use.
