Power Supply Question

My power supply on my computer has bit the dust and I need to replace it. I know how to replace it, that is not a problem, I just don't know what to look for. I thought I knew what to get, then I read an article online that poorly made PSUs can destroy computer components, so now I'm a little concerned.

The PSU I removed from the CPU is a max 350W output with the following specifications:

AC Input: 115/230V ~,7A/4A, 50-60Hz
DC Output: +5V ..../25A, +12V..../13A
-5V..../0.6A, -12V..../0.6A
+5VSB..../2.0A +3.3V..../15A

Computer is INTEL P4, 2.4GHZ
512MB DDR 333MHz
ATX mid tower case
samsung 120 GB 5400 RPM HD
INTEL enhanced 3D video card
52x24x52 CDRW
Microsoft Windows XP - Home

Is 350W enough, and what should I be looking for?
