Choosing a good power supply depends on a few factors; The amount of power your PC and all it's internal/external connected devices need. The way your PC-casing is built (for airflow).

First it's important to know if you have added any internal/external hardware to the pc since you bought it (hard drives, video cards, usb devices, memory etc.). If this is the case then you definitely need to upgrade, but reading the second and third factors I mention below will shed more light on that.

Second (if possible) you need to check the voltage levels on your current Power Supply via you PC's BIOS or by using a program like Speedfan. If any of the voltages show a reading below what they are supposed to deliver, it means you need a higher amperage on your next Power Supply for that particular line. There are three lines to check (12+, 3.3+ and Core voltage). Usually Power Supplies have a Table with voltages on their sides and on the package. Refer to the one of current Power Supply to see how much amperage your new Power Supply needs to have.

Third it's important your new Power Supply has the fans positioned in the right spots. If your always make sure the air is blowing out of the casing. If it has a small fan on the back, it most likely blows outwards (sucking air from inside your PC case though the Power Supply). If it has a big fan on the top side, it's most likely designed to blow out of the top of the PC case. If it has a fan on the bottom side, it's most likely designed to **** air from the inside the PC casing and blow it through the Power Supply. However it may also be designed to blow out the side of smaller PC casings, in which case the Power Supply is position in front of the motherboard.

Fourth is kind of the-rule-of-the-thumb, always (if possible) buy a brand Power Supply. Generic/Standard Power Supplies do not nearly achieve as much power/lifetime/quality as a brand Power Supply. I recommend a Cooler Master, for their silent but powerful coolers.

Fifth but definitely not a lesser one. Check what connections your PC need. Count the amount of pins connected to your motherboard (usually either 20 or 20+4 pins). Most modern Power Supplies cover most of the connection types. But you don't want to come home with a new Power Supply that isn't going to support your old IDE drives or something.

You could help us help you by providing us with a list of Hardware your computer contains. I can search your PC type and read the specifications, but they don't show what you put extra in/on your machine.

I have an Emachines EL1210-01e, and i was wondering what cpu i could put in it, without using too much power i want at least 2.8 ghz at miniium and dual or quad core


The Dual and Quad core processors will not fit on your motherboard because it does not have the CPU pins that the later CPUs.
You best bet is to upgrade the motherboard in your computer and the switch mode power supply.
OR
Get a new desktop computer.

Since you want to upgrade your video card to a much powerful one, you can check this out ATI Radeon HD 4670 HD4670 512MB DVI PCIe Video Card.

Doing the upgrade a power supply upgrade is also advisable since new video card like now requires a high power supply, upgrade the power supply to at least 500W and for a additional fan is already recommended to avoid any overheating problem.

I am about to buy a graphics card and I want to know if I have the power to support it. I have an emachines et1831-05


Check your power supply if it at least 300 watts you should be OK. But some need like 500 watts, so.. Also try and get a card that's not too hard on the system, look for a low Current draw device. & check if you can upgrade your Power Supply

Pulled out supply out of my emachine EL1600...I want to UPGRADE...don't want the same garbage. Do you know of a supply that will fit?


The emachines EL1600 is an ATX form factor to my knowledge. Just goto the store and get an ATX form factor power supply any brand and you should be fine. A 350watt or so should do you unless you're using a higher end video card.

Theres no brand requirements unless you're using a MAC.

I don't really have a problem I just want to upgrade the cpu but don't have a support list. I want to put in the best possible one but don't know which one it will support.


Here are the tips on how to upgrade and support to you CPU.

The 8400GS isn't much better than the onboard graphics in your Emachines, and the 7200 is NO better than your onboard.

If you want a noticeable improvement in performance, get at least a 9500GT, which is the highest card your Emachines can run on its stock power supply.

Any card more powerful than that, you are going to need a new power supply.

This 9500GT is below $50: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/…


RAM Memory Upgrades
1 GB 240 Pin DDR-2 667MHz (PC2-5400) 512MB 240 Pin DDR-2 667MHz (PC2-5400)

Hope this helps.

Please rate me if i am helpful to you.
Thank you.

Emachine won't turn on


With an Emachine it can be the power supply or the motherboard.

My guess it is the capacitors on the motherboard. Check to see if the round cylinders on the motherboard are bulging on the ends, and possibly rusty looking. Esp around the Main CPU/Fan.

They are notorious for bad capacitors.

If the caps look good, it still could be the motherboard, or maybe the power supply. Switcing out the power supply is pretty easy.

Unplug
disconnect all the power connectors
unscrew the 4 screws on the back of the computer
remove and replace the power supply.
Make sure you get a power supply with as much power, or more is much better. 350 watt or higher.
