Hi everyone! New to the forum and first time upgrading an AMD PC.

I got it for free and I thought it was a good idea to have it as a guest PC just to browse the web or checking emails or as a back up.

I can't find any good info about this lenovo motherboard.

Motherboard: m34780m v. 1.0
Serial Number: MJEBEK7
Machine Type Model: 5043A14
FRU 89Y1256
Socket AM3
TwoDDR3 memory slots . (Apparently max ram is 4GB)
I´m not sure about the Chipset 760G or 780G

Will it run Phenom II X6?

Any help will be welcome!

I would not bother changing a CPU in a system used for email or web browsing. 8 Gb ram, put in a small solid state drive, and done. Unless of course you have a really slow CPU in there now, which you did not mention.
