He wouldn't be using it for SMP so he should be good. If that was the case though, I would also agree and say that's a bit risky and a 600w would be better for that but he's just mining and GPU folding.

Given the gale of hot air pouring out of my rig with SMP and a pair of GTX460s, including from my 850w PSU, I've firmed up my decision to always recommend overkill PSUs for folders.

True, I can't argue with that. I wish I knew how much I was pulling from everything. My 460 heats up my room but that's because it's the stupid External Exhaust design.
