San Pedro April 10, 2008 7:06:11 PM Most likely no. I looked at emachines before and they have junk power supplies, not enough wattage and more importantly not enough amps.

I looked at emachines before and they have junk power supplies, not enough wattage and more importantly not enough amps. I concur, especially the older ones. Emachines were made to be a lower end Gateway, not to play games on. Check the PSU you may want to see if you can't upgrade it. Quitoman April 10, 2008 9:18:57 PM I have a 300W power supply.

You will need at the very least a GOOD 450W. I'd prefer a 550W to be safe. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
