For the PSU, I'd get at least a 500w-550w minimum for your setup. If you going to add another GPU later, I'd go for at least 750w. Of coarse I'd only recommend quality PSU's from Antec/Corsair/Seasonic/PCP&C/etc.

For $60 here is a 500w PSU:
Antec EarthWatts EA-500D Green 500W ATX12V v2.3 / EPS12V 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

For SLI system $95 - $20 MIR = $75!
Antec EarthWatts Series EA-750 Green 750W ATX12V v2.3 SLI Certified CrossFire Certified 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Continuous Power Supply

The Pro 3 has less SATA III ports and a few less options over the Pro4. Personally I'd go with the Pro4 if I were buying.
