    Intel® Pentium® 4 Processor 516 (64-bit with Intel® EM64T)
    (2.93GHz, 533MHz FSB, 1MB L2 cache)

    I have managed to resurrect a family member's not-so-old eMachine, and this is its processor. I have not been keeping up with hardware and have no idea if this is halfway decent, or the redheaded stepchild of CPUs nowadays.

    On a decent motherboard with a decent video card, it would still make
    for a good internet machine.

    that's actually a good CPU. LGA-775? 1066MHz FSB?

    I'll take it if you don't want it. Would make a great media center pc for my TV.

    i'm surprised that type of cpu was in an emachine....

    that's a decent cpu, more than enough horsepower for the avg. user and casual gamer. my older leser powerful P4 w/ 7600Gt plays HL2 1600x1200 just fine.

    It's aint no core2duo, but that's a more than a decent CPU.

    I honestly dont know or remember what LGA-775 means. And No, only 533 FSB, as far was the emachines website states.
