Default Enough for 24/7 folding ???

OCZ ModXStream Pro 500W PSU

Enough juice for 2x EVGA 9600 GSO, E8500 (prob mild overclock), 1x WD 500 S16 500GB, 1x CD/DVD burner, 6x fans ???

Very good price. About $65 at Direct Canada.

That should be more than enough, you can find it in a comparison here; AnandTech: 500W to 550W: 12 Power Supplies Compared

Better deal would be the BFG LS550 Canadian Prices: BFG Technologies - BFG 550LS 550W Power Supply ATX V2.2 EPS12V Active PFC... - BFGR550WLSPSU as low as 59.15 after $25 MIR

Agreed, that power supply will be more than enough to run that rig 24/7 for folding... You could probably run that rig off a solid 450W power supply, so you have room to spare
