According to Tom's October guide, the Radeon 7770 is the best bang for your buck at your price range:

However, if you can put out the money now and wait for the mail in rebate, the 650ti is the better choice:
At 109.99 after rebate, it's 7790 performance for about the same price as the 7770.

As for the PSU, I'd go with the 500w, it leaves you better options if you decide to upgrade in the future. Just be sure they are 80+ Bronze certified or better.

Below are the lowest priced HD 7770 (GHz Edition = Stockspeed) and GTX 650 Ti @ stock speed of 925MHz. Based on the chart above the stock speed version of the GTX 650 Ti has 96% of the OC'ed version @ 1072MHz. That means the Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition has about 74% of the overall performance of the GTX 650 Ti @ stock speed. Another way of stating that is the GTX 650 Ti has 135% the performance of the Radeon HD 7770, or simply it is 35% faster.

Based on the after rebate prices below and including shipping the Radeon HD 7770 costs $85. The GTX 650 Ti costs $90. While the GTX 650 Ti costs about 6% more, it also provides about 35% more performance. That makes the GTX 650 Ti the best bang for the buck.
