SCENARIO: I buddy got a new GPU that requires 2 PCI-E 8/6 pin connectors but he lost the modular cables, I have a higher wattage PSU of the same brand/80+Rating/Same model I believe.

His PSU is an EVGA 750 Watt 80+ Gold where mine is a EVGA 850 Watt 80+ Gold.

Wondering if I gave him one of my spare cables would it be fine?

You need to confirm the exact model. For example if you have the EVGA 750 G2 and he has the EVGA 850 G2 you're good. But if you have the EVGA NEX750G or the 750 G3 and he has an 850G2 you cannot share that cable (or Vice versa).
