Get the 4300, They are great. The 6600 O.C.'s higher but I would go 4300 and 8800gts for sure.

4300 would get higher overclocks than the 6300 as it has lower fsb speed, meaning u can go higher

true since higher fsb has very little performance gain.

I don't advice you to get such PSU, It's uneffective. Go for such brands SeaSonic, Corsair, ...

Output: +3.3V@30A,+5V@38A,+12@25A,-12V@0.8A,-5@0.5A,+5VS B@2A
25A * 12v = 300Watts of power
------------------------------------
You only want to use ~50-70% of the total available power to maintain good voltage regulation through the PSU. I would recommend at least good 450W PSU, with more than one +12v rail and at least 18A on each rail. If you wanted to have a little more room for your OC..go for a 600W. Even with increased power consumption, you should still be under 70% of 600W.
