Chances are he'll never see 500W draw in anything except stress tests and unless he's a bencher a solid 500W unit will easily do the trick for him
Phaedrus2129 is the PSU editor of this forum. If you use his PSU Calc, it suggests using a 600W power supply if the power supply and video cards are at stock speeds. A half decent 550W cannot run a overclocked i7 and GTX 460 SLI setup.

I don't want any newbies blowing up their 550W power supplies trying to run a setup like this...

A quality 650w is more than enough, my sig rig is enough proof of that. I've run my gpu's at 1.2v for benching and all was good and that was with the cpu at 5.5ghz with 1.55v iirc.

I just explain to you it can and it will, more so, a 500W will do it, and if you actually know what you're doing you can go even lower

As far as the Phaedrus' calculator goes, it does give a reasonable margin to work with in case the PSU you use/chose is not that brilliant(poor 12v output or w/e).

i have tested borrowing my friends gtx 460 n running it on my rig for 2 months....my gpu's were clocked at 850mhz and i7 clocked at 3.2ghz......

so i think u should be more than fine with 700 watt....
