I have an eMachine version W3622, i've tried looking online, looking though my system and i even ran Aida32, which also said motherboard name unknown. I am wanting to put a new CPU and mb in my computer, but i can not buy one unless i know the physical size of my current one, and i really do not want to take apart my computer to find out. Can anyone tell what motherboard i have? or a program that can help me?

eMachines use unique boards for their machines. Therefore it will not have a public name though most people in the know call them "pieces of junk", namely because the performance you get out of the cheapest non-eMachine board you can find anywhere ever is far superior to that ever seen by any eMachines board ever. :)
Most eMachines are MicroATX boards. If you want to reuse the case don't use the Bestec power supply you have unless you want to replace it and the board in three months time.
