Supposedly the Thermaltake Toughpower series isn't as bad as Thermaltake on average. Maybe get one of those. Try to find reviews before purchasing anything though.

Get the HD6870, brand is irrelevant. Cheapest one!

A lot depends on where you live and what stores are near you.

Some of the OCZ power supplies like the OCZ ModXStream Pro series are very good and very cheap with mail in rebates. (often $30 mir).
