The reason I was looking at getting these instead of another toxic edition is because the toxic edition tends to go out of stock on most sites.

I'm on a budget of roughly $300 for another card and power supply so what would you guys suggest? Tiger Direct has them for $190 so i guess could grab one from there and then maybe one of these 2 psu's?

I don't know anything about the toxic edition, but as long as it has the same specs (clock speed, etc.) you can use two different branded GPUs. Obviously if you can its better to go with the exact same card from the same manufacturer, but if not, you should be fine.
As for the PSU, both you linked are great, and the one Adjas linked is really good too. Antec, Corsair, OCZ are all great PSU companies.

While getting a mid-line brand for GPUs is fine, I wouldn't do it with the PSU. Don't go XFX for a PSU.

Not the best GPU brand, but apparently their PSUs are made by Seasonic, so I retract my previous statement

In a non-vram bound scenario, the 560ti and 6950 are basically equal. I'd say a 470 is probably the closest thing in the 4xx series.

not sure about the 2xx series.

^In crossfire they are apparently comporable to a 580 in this Bench by Tom's, at ~$270 less expense via OP's deal.

Straight up, 1 to 1, they rate right next to a 460.

Good little deal there. Sold out fast.

Just use the coupon codes guys when ordering from geeks for 10% off: GEEKBERT or techbargains.

They also randomly do Free Shipping on a ton of items there. Couple of weeks ago almost all video cards had free shipping.
