Boost Gauge Range

In my build I am looking for a HP range of about 300-350. From looking at peoples dyno posts in the sticky (which not sure why people neglect to put their boost in the post) it looks like around 14-17 PSI would provide the HP gains I am looking for. So would a 20psi gauge be the best gauge to get?

Or since I will likely get addicted to the additional power go with the 30psi gauge so if/when I go with a return fuel system and a few other upgrades to get over the 350ish HP mark it would be one less thing I need to replace?

Thanks.
