I know the "default" size or whatever for PSU is ATX, but I don't know what the size is on my current one. It's just a crappy default one that comes with prebuilt computers (I did not build this computer myself.) It's an eMachines and the case seems to be the default size for computer cases so I assume an ATX PSU will fit?

Reason for getting a new PSU is because my current graphics card is a 7600GT and I want to upgrade that but of course I'll need a better PSU in order to do that.
