Only one way to find out!

If you aren't running a lot of optical drives, fans, and unpowered USB devices it might work.  Give it a shot and you will know soon enough. biggrin

It all depends on what brand of powersupply you have.  They are not created equal.   Some 350w are good and some are garbage.  A somewhat good measure is of its true power is how many amps is on the 12volt line.  It will say on the box/label.  Try it out and see if it works as stated above.  Good luck.
