Default Power Supply help..

Okay.. Hello all, so I'm getting pretty close on buying my desktop.. Just need a bit of acknowledgement of how much wattage I should get in my Power supply. I'm running a tight budget, and I've also used the online calculators for wattage but all of them are giving me completely different wattage's

I'm going with a AMD 6300 3.5ghz Vishera CPU.

And Going to get a HD 7870 GHz Edition Graphics card.

Also planning on getting two cathodes or so to put in the case (If that matters alot).

If its possible what would the wattage be recommended for OC'ing and not OC'ing? o.O

Okay thanks a bunch, also, would it be still good if I would OC the graphics card at all? or best if i just left it alone with this PSU that you linked me? I actually was looking at that corsair one, and a raidmax one, but I've heard really bad reviews on there products so I'll stay away from raidmax.
