The links you have posted are the same case. Could you please find a link for your current motherboard. I googled the model info you posted and nothing was found.

As long as your board accepts standard ATX form factors it will fit. But to be sure please post up a link on your board and i'll confirm it.

As far as the power supply the one included with the case should work but I'd still like a motherboard link to re confirm for you. I wouldn't skimp on the case. Do you a bit more to get something a little better case wise? And generally bundled PSU's are really cheap I would recommend getting a good 500 or 600 watt one.

Well, the board could be an OEM version of Intel, with that specific model, but since Emachines are having almost the same infrastructure, the board is mATX. However, I'd recommend you to stick to your old case if you're thinking this one...just because yours is much more tough to dents. A good one would be this one:

that looks like it will fit(screwhole orientations)...it says microATX too, so it will most likely fit

Haha, trivum, I have the same computer (edit- well, same company and make, but not insides. you catch my drift, right?)

Wow, I didn't think the mobo was mATX. I could have sworn this PC is mid-ATX, unless its a mATX mobo in a mid-ATX case.

With that in mind, if it says it supports mATX then more than likely it will work.

Let me know how it works out, I might want to get a new case. But I am thinking more towards a mod than I am a completely new one.
