for 7800GT and a cpu like that PLUS you'll be overclocking, i'd say get a bigger PSU. 550W+ would be great.

oh and if you like overclocking , FX-57 is good and extremely fast
but it will be out of your budget

PC Specs:

Intel Core 2 Duo E6420 Conroe 2.13ghz
Gigabyte P35-S3 Motherboard
A-DATA 2x1GB DDR2 800mhz memory
Geforce 8600GT 256MB GDDR3 PCI-Express
