It totally depends on what type of PSU you get. Tell us your computer's specs and we can recommend a good PSU for you. I estimate $50-80. It's highly doubtful that you'll need a $80+ PSU, since you have an eMachine I assume it's not a high-performance power hog.

It can range from being easy to a big hassle to install. You just unhook all wires, unscrew yours, and remove it from the case. Depending on the case's design and the size of the PSU, you may not be able to get it by the motherboard. If this is the case, you have to remove the motherboard, which will add a lot of time and hassle to the process. The same goes for if you can't get the new one in. Then just put the new one in (hopefully you won't have to remove the motherboard), screw it in, and connect all of the wires. Set the voltages correctly for your country, then power on.
