    Maybe it is "o huey"

    What is the context?
    Какая разница, умереть богатым или бедным?

    Какой толк от богатства если ты не счастлив.

    Well, the meaning of both is the same, which is to go nuts. Both are slang. However, офигеть is pretty harmless, although informal, and you wouldn't want to say it to your boss or to someone you are not close to, while the other one is an example of русского мата and is pretty strong.

    Могу абсолютно точно сказать, что второе относится к ненормативной лексике.

    Your dictionary is right. Хрен means horse radish.

    Ни хрена себе is an idiomatic expression meaning Wow!

    Guys...culture of russian "bad words" cannot be explained in one thread. We should have a separate forum to discuss it.
