The indications are that the xp2000 is not a great oc'er and most of the info in the AMD procs section indicates that owners are a bit frustrated about this fact. The 2000 is at the top of the tree and is to be expected.
With ref to the psu - 300W is too light for any combo like this. You must have a psu giving 200W on the 5&3.3V lines. You will find these ratings quoted on the case of any reputable psu. If you cannot find the info, don't buy it. In general you'll find that most psu's > 400W will give this. This is what you are looking for from the psu.
