Emachines won't advise you on an upgrade. You might get a 95w phenom II to work, but be prepared to change the motherboard if it doesn't.

It's hard to say. Some of those old ddr2 boards will run am3, and some won't. You'll just have to try it. If it doesn't work, you'll have to learn how to change a motherboard and find a new windows copy. Next time if you want to upgrade, I would build it yourself from scratch. Otherwise sell your system intact and buy another oem system. Here's a video to help you change motherboards if needed: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A7IPTHwsrwo.
