    I think you better replace your PSU soon! If you search this site, you will find an immense amount of information about eMachines.

    I'd use this power supply. Newegg's an awesome place to buy from.

    Regards :)

    What are the specs on that PSU? Newegg's site is currently having problems; I can't view the page. It wouldn't show me the page when I tried to search for something, either.
