you need to check on the FSB of each of those machines and that governs what processors you can use.

I think that eMachines tends to favor ECS motherboards, if I remember correctly (I like ECS/PC Chips boards, have used a number of them). I would think that any compatible board could replace a system board, with the understanding that a clean install of the O/S needs to happen.
I had an eMachines system and the only bad thing that I recall was the original PS put in was not equal to the task. Other than that, I had no complaints or denigrating comments.
Are you replacing the CPUs on these systems?

I would stay away from ECS boards. Its like putting a band aid on a head wound it may work for a few minutes but it won't last long. I have used MSI and Gigabyte boards to repair the E-Machines I have worked on. IMO I wouldn't buy anything on E-bay that is an integral part of the computer. There is usually a problem with returns. Newegg.com, tigerdirect.com, amazon.com are some other choices.
