Well the short answer should be: "Don't even try it", for the sake of the components.

Now the long answer is, It will be very painfull for the PSU, but it may work, for a few mins atleast...

Thing is even thought its not a bad PSU, thats not the only thing your PSU will be powering, theres CPU, RAM, Motherboard, SSD, HDD, etc.

That GPU alone use 1x 8 pin cable (150 watts MAX)+ 1x 6 pin cable (75 watts Max) thats = 225watts + your CPU + motherboard + ram + fans+ sata drivers+ etc.

So I think a more powerfull unit will be the safe bet.

Whats your CPU and Motherboard ? nvm you posted it already

Yeah, know that I see the rest of your system is still No.

While gaming youre going to be using around all the PSU can deliver and you don't want that with that kind of unit.
