It is likely that it can since it is the same socket and only 95watt tdp CPU. Problem with emachine is that there is no support information like that available.

This looks to support that it will work http://www.ebay.com/itm/GENUINE-EMACHINES-MOTHERBOARD-E...

Well. I like to game a lot, and the processor I have just isn't working for me. So that quad core will be a lot better then what I have, and It's a low price too. And you're positive it will work then, right?

Oh, and If you're wondering, well. How can this guy game on his computer when he's got an integrated video card? Well. I bought a different one, and I like to game a lot but the processor just isn't doing it for me.

this is proof

, but you cannot game with integrated graphics card, you need to buy a good graphics card to do so, and you would be better of spending money on a graphics card than the CPU, yours is good enough for some gaming, but if you put a graphics card in you would need to buy a new more powerful power supply and these computers use smaller type of psu. so expect spending a bit.
btw, what games do you want to play, and what resolution?

I have a Radeon HD 5570 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

and yes, I'm on regular psu. I haven't changed a thing in this computer except the video card. I can use the processor I want to buy on stock psu, right?

220w ? really ? then how the hell is your pc even working Because a stock clock 6450 needs 300w lol sorry just you know being the 5570 is a higher rank and has an older larger 55nm? process... or have you not installed the card yet ?

@teleaddicted
it would work but i dont think it would be stable 300 is recommended not needed as long as your psu isnt being overloaded and you have sufficient amperage

being that low i wouldnt attempt it would be better off just upgrading it you can pick up a cosair 650watt PSU for about 75 off of newegg they are really nice with that configuration get minimm of a 500watt with 28amps or better.
you can try it most it will do is just crash or shut off the computer cause of it over drawing the power or worse case blow a fuse

A system with HD5570 typically pulls less than 200watts that is why it is still running but close to max on the +12volt rail on the PSU http://www.anandtech.com/show/4278/amds-radeon-hd-6670-...

So, what you're saying is that I wouldn't be able to run the processor and video card at the same time?

I think you could, I do not know the quality of the PSU though some can go substantially over their rated load and everything is still fine others will blow up. Usually OEM's use PSU's from the first group. If you notice any instability then you know what the problem is and need to replace the PSU.

I know that computer is bad or whatever, but if I buy that processor, Will I be able to put it in my computer and use it without buying a new motherboard or anything?

Yes or No...?

Risky undertaking imo.
Most cpu upgrades require a bios update.
If no information regarding a newer bios version or cpu support list is available = you're taking your chances

I cannot guarantee, but it does use less power than the one you chose.
