What PSU does it have? The good ones will take voltage anywhere between 100 and 240 volts (sometimes even 90-260V), while bad ones will have a switch to choose between voltage levels, or possibly even only take a fixed voltage. You might also need a little bit of hardware to handle a different plug shape, but you could probably get that at a Radio Shack.

If its a corasir VS550 you'll need a new PSU. The VS series is 220v only and wont work on 110v.

Is that the Corsair CS550, RM550, or VS550? The first two take input voltage 100-240V, but the VS only takes 200-240V.
