    It depends on the chipset used in the motherboard, power requirements of the new cpu and the old motherboard's ability to provide that power, and if the BIOS has any limitations added by the manufacture that may supersede the chipset design.

    I'm gonna have to say no to be on the safe side. However I don't know without finding evidence on-line where a dual-core would work. A quick search only showed the CPU that came in the system. I would be willing to bet the Pentium D 900 series would work but I'm not sure about the Core2 Duo's.

    According to some of the reviews I saw it has an Nvidia 7050 chipset so in theory it can support most of the Core2 and pentium dual core processors, however that depends on if the Emachines BIOS will support them.
