Help finding the right PSU for an old computer

Greetings everyone!

A friend of mine asked me to install a new PSU into his old computer. This is the computer

The general specs on the old power supply are AC 110/230 V (50/60Hz), 430W

I've been looking at a number of power supplies and haven't found one yet that precisely has those specs. I haven't been able to find an exact match yet. Does it just matter that it's 50/60 Hz with 430 watts?

Last I checked, the 110/230V essentially involves a switch on the back based upon the location you're operating the machine. Is it a deal breaker if it's not exactly 110/230V?

What would be the best thing I could do here to get this 2005 computer back up and running for a friend of mine?
