    I got more imformation from different people. I stand to be corrected you can put an am3 processor in a am2 socket which is what you have.you cant do vice versa . The thing you dont want to do is go up to 65 watt processor for the heat sink will get too hot. the 4850e wich is a 2.5 and the 5050e is a 2.6 is still the best bet. you can get these on ebay just keep checking. Also you might have to change the bios when going to an am3 processor just have to try it ! The motherboard is compatible without replacing it good luck!By the way I put 7200rmp hard drive from seagate and windows 7 ultimate and it rocks!

    I'm trying now to get a couple of 4850e's, one for this eMD 620 and the other for an EL1200 mini desktop. If the auctions don't pan out, I might buy one 4850e from the Frys in Plano (their site shows they have one) and try it out in the desktop first.

    After putting a T4300 PDC in my Acer 5230e (posting from it now), I'm excited to get some more performance out of the little eMachines unit.

    I just messaged this guy over ebay, I wasn't sure about this processor being used in Laptops because it says the platforms PC. Now excuse my complete lack of knowledge but i'm not sure. He replied by saying that it is a desktop processor only. here's the link:

    Okay in the AMD family the processors that end in e. Example 2650e which is what u have now. The max watt in the 4850e and the 5050e is 45w. My 5050e came with a heat sink and fan for a tower. But the processor does work on the rs690 board which is what you have and you do not have to change the bios. Which is a blessing.
    There were 5050e's for cheaper than that guy on ebay with the 4850e check the site .
    Good luck!

    I tried to get some of those. Want two. They both got outbid when I wasn't awake or near the computer. Seems the 4850e and 5050e are the ones coming up most often. I also found a 4450B processor, which I suppose is AMD's business class range. I think it's $53 buy it now or something...lemme look...

    Yep, there's that one and another 4450B for $40 BIN.

    3250e, $87 BIN, not worth it as you'll see below...

    4050e, nothing

    4450e, nothing

    4850e, one with a $29 start bid, another up to $47 with half a day left, and another for $66 BIN

    5050e, only one at $87 BIN

    Every AM2 socket 45W or less on this wiki page ought to do...

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_AMD_Athlon_X2_microprocessors

    Which reminds me of the BE series. Here's one up to $11 so far, a BE-2400:

    search.ebay.com/180445311412

    According to Passmark CPUMark lists, it's halfway between a 4450e and a 4850e. 1240 score as opposed to 1180 or 1290. I'd say that is on my watchlist. Might as well try it out. Worst case I gotta buy another EL-1200 from CedarPC for $80 to get my desktop back up and running. I'm so glad the resale on these eMachines is nil. I don't have to buy spare PARTS, just spare COMPUTERS.

    The motherboard on the eMD620-5777 is an AM2+ and the Athlon II X4 605e, Athlon II X4 600e or Athlon II X3 400e are backwards compatible with the AM2+ socket
