Looking for new psu for my system

Specs: windows xp pro/sp2, Amd athlon xp 3200+/
MSI k7n2 delta-ilsr
2x 80gb maxtor diamond
xfx geforce 6800
2x512 ram
I was interested in getting the ocz 600w gamexstream and was wondering if this would be ok to use with the amd athlon xp 3200+. I only found one article that stated it is good for older and newer systems but thought i would rely on the opinions of the people in this forum. I have had only good results from here and that is why i keep coming with questions when i can't find or get conflicting answers. Thank you for your time.

What PSU do you currently have? Is there something wrong with it?

The following is definitely more PSU than you need, but you can always use it when you move up to a more modern system.

I would concur with my esteemed colleague jam, more than you need for that old timer. But, as jam mentioned, if you're thinking about something a little more powerful in the near future...

The single 52A +12v rail is a big plus compared to the four 18A +12v rails on the OCZ psu.

Thank you all for the responses. Yes my other power supply went down, went to turn it on and it did not respond at all, DOA. I am going to be building a new amd system with in the year and was going to drop the ocz in the the new build and from what i remember the amd athlon xp 3200+ is a power hog. Thanks again, i can always count on the great people in this forum.

"from what i remember the amd athlon xp 3200+ is a power hog"

About 77W which equates to roughly 6.5A on the +12v rail. You don't need a high power PSU, this 430W Thermaltake was probably the most popular PSU back in the socket A heydays...notice it has over 2000 reviews:
