Why do you "need" to upgrade your CPU? The eMachines T3304 has a S754 board & Sempron 3300+ (2.0GHz). There were no dual core S754 CPUs so all you'd be able to do is upgrade to an Athlon64, probably a 3000+ (2.0GHz) or 3200+ (2.2GHz) with the Venice core. You'd be picking up next to nothing in clock speed, the only advantage would be in the increase in L2 cache from 128k to 512k. The T3304 only shipped with 256MB RAM so if you haven't already done so, you should upgrade to 2GB (2 x 1GB) RAM & add a PCIe video card before worrying about the CPU.
