Default help! buying a replacement power supply

this is copied from the label of the old supply:

L&C Technology Inc.
Switching Power Supply
Model: LC300ATX
For Home or Office Use

115/230V~, 7/4A
60/50 Hz

Output 300W
+3.3V 14A
+5V 25A
+12V 10A
+5VSB 1A
- 5V 0.5A
- 12V 0.5A
PS-ON 0.5A

and the size is approximately 51/2x6x3 inches. The local computer repair store is asking about $50-$60 for a new supply, and I know I can order one off the internet for much cheaper. So can anyone recommend what kind of power supply I should get? And where to get a good deal on one? Help is greatly appreciated

I'm assuming that it is a regular old PSU, in which case any ATX PSU will work.
That is a very nice PSU from a great manufacturer. I highly recommend it.

I currently have this psu right now.

It is cheap and it is perfect for you since you probly dont need a lot of power with that 300watt psu you used to have. I do like that thermltake one as well, but if you want cheap but reliable I like mine.
New build in progress, but this is what I got for now:
-AMD x2 5200+
-Asus M3A78-EM AM2+
-Buffalo 2x1gb ddr2 800
-Hitachi 250gb Sata HDD
-Antec Minuet Case w/ 350w psu
-Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
