What would be the lowest watt power supply i could have for these components, the cpu may be over clocked and it's very probable that i'll be crossfiring the GPUs.

ARIAnet Radeon HD 7850 1024MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card #51846 £ 112.99 £ 112.99

Also could you tell me if these components are compatible. Thanks.

600w would work, but your psu would probably burn out pretty fast. Look into a 700w maybe and get 8 gb ram.

AMD recommends 600W for Crossfire 7850, but it's better to overspec a little to leave room. I'd go 750W+ for crossfire.

Keep in mind that 1GB Video RAM is going to be a major bottleneck after crossfiring.
