Replacement PSU for Dell Studio 540 MT

I have a Dell Studio 540 MT that is about 3 years old - all original parts. This morning, I touched the power button to start up and nothing happened. At all. After searching around a bunch, it seems likely that it is a PSU issue. Seems to be a common occurrence with this computer.

Can someone suggest a good PSU to replace with? I work on this computer, so it gets 40-50 hours of use each week. No gaming. But lots videos, music, photos, browsing, VPN, and generally plenty of applications running at any given time.

I appreciate your help. Also, in case it's the mobo, can someone suggest one of those?
