    What are you upgrading from? Did the orignal emachine have just integrated graphics, i.e. attached to the motherboard?

    I ask as upgrading the graphics card will often fairly significantly increase the power requirements of the system. As most PC manufacturers only put a power supply in that is just enough to power the bits it is shipped with, you may find you have power problems, or could kill you PSU by over stressing it over time, this in turn could damage other PC components if/when it goes.
