Yes you probably be pushing the limits. Remember that the Video Card is not the only thing pulling power. Powers supplies really do not run what they are showing and depending on the age of it.

You may be able to do this for a short period of time (really do not suggest it). Will the insurance cover the card if it fails and you are not. They may say you are not running under the recommended sorry your loss.

@tomerlit123 you are asking advice at more than one forum, please advise us if you wish to continue with this thread here, or continue seeking help elsewhere.

You have been given advice which clearly shows the PSU requirements for the Video card you asked about. Please do not expect us to give any advice contrary to the manufacturer specifications.

Please let us know if you wish to continue here.
