    I would like to upgrade the processor in my father-in-laws desktop PC. I know he has an eMachines W3609 that he upgraded from a Celeron D to a Pentium 4. But i don;t know what P4 is in it. I would like to get a good idea, as this would be a fathers day gift. I already have ram in the cart. Does anyone else have one that can tell me which socket to buy? I know intel has had a few in the last 4 years. i am thinking about a dual core for Windows 7. It came loaded with Vista Basic, but that;s no help.

    Thanks.

    The board uses a socket 775 processor. I wouldn't advise purchasing a processor. eMachine's uses manufacturer proprietary motherboards with a proprietary BIOS and only eMachines can tell you what processors are supported by that motherboard.
