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.

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.
