System specs: http://support.gateway.com/emachines/desktop/2009/emachines/et/ET1331/ET1331sp2.shtml

I think this is the info you need to know: http://www.ascendtech.us/emachines-mcp61pm-gm-am2-motherboard_i_mb64emacet11610.aspx . From what I have looked at, that is likely to be the motherboard for that system.

I feel obligated to say...it's sometimes possible to upgrade to a CPU that is not listed as supported...the problem with that is the risk factor.

hello hamluis, thanks for the links and info on all of this , i was looking at the second link website about the mother board , sorry i am not up on all of this , is this the same as what i have now in my e machine ? Or is this an updated more powerful motherboard ?? what i would like is a at least 550ti ge force graphic card and a faster cpu whatever the pc can take . could this motherboard on the second link take that ? i imagine i would have to also buy a larger power pack.
