This pic might help you

You right click on the OU and click on Block Inheritance.

Then on the GPO's you still want applied to your OU you just Link an Existing GPO which is also under the right click menu on the OU.

Keep in mind that all of these changes are under the Group Policy Management menu. Not Active Directory Users and Computer.

The PIC I attached might help.

Yes, you can select "Block Inheritance" on any GPO you specify.
If you use Block Inhertiance it will block ALL policies from affecting that OU - Except that is policies that have been ENFORCED, which cannot be blocked.

so i right click the ou and it will give me that option?
nope.....block inheritance on the OU at which the GPO is linked
yeah you will see when you right click on the OU in group policy management console....not in AD users and computers
Policies are blocked at the OU - not at the link - if you have not installed the Group Policy Management console get it and install it now -
