I have this L&C Tech 300 PSU that came w/ my $50 case.
3.3v = 12A
5v = 25A
12v = 10A
5vsb = 1A
-5v = .5A
-12v = .5A

How can I figure out my 3.3 + 5V wattage?

My 5v fluctuates from 4.85 to 4.96 almost all the time when I o/c.
Will a better PSU enable me to hit 150fsb?
Very stable at 147fsb.

Here are my voltages:

um yea, it wouldnt be a bad idea...if you EVER plan on upgrading, then get something like the 350/431 watt enermax, very stable, and more power than you will ever use...mine works WONDERFULLY, got my cpu to 1.57 stable

Would I be better off w/ a new enermax 430w supply supply or 256mb of pc2700 corsair or a new eopx 8kha+.
Which one should I get based on current setup?

the ram wouldnt yield you too much over the crucial. are you
experiencing any problems with the current PSU? i'd probably
go with the new PSU.

No problems whatsoever (knock on wood).
Everything is running perfectly except for the fact that I can't post at 150fsb.
Thinking maybe a 400watt Antec or Enermax psu might finally be the answer.
what do you think?

well, depending on how much money you can spend, get a 431 watt enermax....the EG465P-VE, its good

if you have any money left over, then get 2 sticks of 256mb corsair xms pc2400....it ROCKS!!!!
