Default PSU 3.3 volt problems

Heres my Current setup:

Asus A7N8X-E mobo
2x 512MB DDR PC-3200
ATI RADEON 9800PRO
AMD Athlon XP 2800
Lite-on CD ROM
Floppy Drive
40gb HardDrive
Fortron 350W "FSP350-60PN"
2 80mm case fans (1) has led lights
1 cold cathode light

So far have had this setup running for about 2 months now and have no problems. I have the Asus Probe running constantly and the other day it alearted me that my 3.3V out of the 10% threshold. As i lookd into it its running at 3.632 and has no problem but everynow and then it goes to 6.616 and alearts me. Was wondering if this is something i need to worry about and if there is a way to fix it.

Thx Droot

I think for the price of a PSU, it might be worth getting a new one.

According to this , you'll need a psu that can supply at least 236 W. For brands and different models, I'm not really sure which psu would be best.
