Default power supply specs??

Hey, I have an emachines AMD 64 3400, my power supply fan has been makin a lot of noise and i want to get a new one to replace it.
I was wondering how to find out which one would be the correct one. Thanks
I do no want a really expensive one, just something simple and cheap. I have an older emachines cpu, and i was wondering if that power supply would work in my current one.

Thanks

Rule 1 for buying a power supply

1: NEVER ,I REPEAT NEVER BUY A CHEAP POWER SUPPLY ,
if a power supply goes it could take all the parts with it and no one wants that, i wouldnt recomend using your old power supply unless its the same spec as the newer one,best bet is to get one with a big fan on the bottom a 400 or 450 watt should do you.

hi not sure what the requirements are for the 7600gt but make sure the psu has the right 12v ratings for the card, otherwise u will have stability issues etc.
