    hello, on newegg.com is there a motherboard that would be compatible for my computer?
    or any other sites that would sell cheap motherboards and not ones that are 100$+ for one.
    Thank you

    Any motherboard you get will be compatible because you might have to start fresh using only the computer's case. You will have to obtain a copy of XP or Vista because any eMachines discs will be useless. You will need to replace the power supply... If by chance, you find a board that will take your old processor and memory you will save some money there
