i was told i need to get a new power supply for OCing. They said that i should get a 300 W power supply so i was woundering if it matters WHAT type i get or if any would do. Thx

This is just my opinion but the price for a 350 watt would only be a couple dollars more and for that matter a 400-425 watt is not that far off of that.

Take a look at newegg.com and look for the Sparkle brand for a good powersupply that won't cost alot or look at the pc power and cooling for a little higher quality but also higher price.

Sparkle 400PS

very nice PSU, and one of the few that still have pots to adjust the 12 and 5 volt rails.

i use them as my main PS in the dual PS setups i have been doing lately. latest dually is a Sparkle 400 volt modded and married to a PowMax 500 watt, all with red arcylic covers and bleu LED exhaust fans, totally kewl in the acrylic see through box it is housed in, in a darkened room, it is like XMAS early.

go for it.
