How many watts for a PSU do in need?

I need to find out what type of power supply I need to get for my PC i am building.
Here are my specs:
Hard drives - Seagate 1tb 7200rpm and Seagate 500gb 7200 rpm
CPU- AMD Athlon II X4 640
GPU- ASUS HD7750 (or something similar)
Ram- 3 sticks of DDR3
drive- DVD

Thanks a lot and if you have any recommendations for a GPU similar to the one up there that would be great to.

Thanks!
