Video Card: ASUS HD7850-DC-1GD5 Radeon HD 7850 1GB 256-bit GDDR5

Thanks.

$60 after $10 MIRc, if that is okay:
XFX Core Edition PRO550W (P1-550S-XXB9) 550W ATX12V 2.2 & ESP12V 2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply
* 2 x PCI-e power connectors, so you could power any single GPU out on the market or 2 x 7850's if you like!

Absolute minimum I'd buy for your setup:
$45 - $10 MIRc = $35!
CORSAIR Builder Series CX430 430W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply
* 1 x PCI-e power connector for any GPU that requires only 1 PCI-e power connector, which the 7850 does.

$37 shipped!
Antec VP-450 450 Watt Energy Star Certified Power Supply
* Not 80 Plus certified, but will work with the 7850, if your on a tight budget, which you don't seem to be there ($60 for PSU).
