I recently got a new graphics card, it requires 300w my power supply is 250(ikr) and im getting a new 650w power supply in about 5 days so i was wondering if i should just put an extra fan in my computer and risk it for about 4 days (i dont care if the power supply i have now is ruined as long as the rest of my computer is not)

The GT610 uses an insignificant amount of power; you'll be fine, assuming you don't want this for games (the card is too weak for games, unless they'll run on Intel's HD4000 integrated graphics, although it may be even weaker than that).
