anything cheaper 139.99 is rediculious for a power supply when a ibm power supply is only 28.00 to 80.00

I don't know, maybe on eBay. The difference between a PC power supply and a Mac power supply (iMac particularly) is that PCs use generic standard power supplies whereas a Mac uses a proprietary (custom) power supply.
