So would this cause the card not to work? If not, could I connect it and buy a new PSU in the near future?
chances are it will work but without knowing a few more details like the amps on the 12 volt rail (which would be on the label) or better yet the maker/model of the PSU it is highly suspect given what is known. there are many PSUs that are suppose to provide 500 watts but can't even muster up 350 watt before going down in flames.
not to "scare" you just trying to be informative.
+1 that's what i figured but was not sure so i didn't say nothing thanks.
never been afraid to speak up.
wth, no one knows me in RL - it isn't like i can get embarrassed if i am wrong . . . .
