  1. Hi, i bought myself a new video card that requires a power supply with 350watt, but my current one in the pc only is 250 watt.
    Since i cant afford a new psu right now, would there be any major harm using the video card for a week until i can get a new psu?

    There won't be any harm, just don't plug in the power unitl you get the new PSU.

    Heck I just bought a 580 watt psu for like 40-50 $ so you should be able to afford a better one unless your really broke right now...
