Why? your system would only draw around 270w.

Whoever told you to buy a $450 1500w power supply for an HD 7850 is an idiot or just screwing with you. Either way they are not qualified to give you any computer advice ever again about anything.

Here this is for the whole system with just about every card combination you can run.

Just FYI that is only a decent 1500w power supply. There are better ones for less money when you get your $2000 worth of video cards that need that much power. Jonnyguru only gives it an 8.4/10.

Oh yeah the excellent Corsair 430CX is on sale for $20 at Tigerdirect. It's plenty for your listed system as amuffin already said.
