for PSU, at least 850W. You can verify it at Corsair website where it calculates minimum wattage depending on what you select for CPU, graphics, and number of HDDs

If it's just 2 6850s and an overclock you can get by with a good 650W. Corsair 650TX would be one less expensive choice.
The two cards themselves will not pull more than 250W:
Add another 200W for the rest of the system and throw in another 200 for margin, and a good 650W is fine.

However, if that is your total budget you should probably not be looking at i7 950. That's more like an AMD budget. Perhaps a 6-core CPU.
