No none at all.
Ok, so while it may not require the additional power from the PSU I still think it requires a larger PSU. If possible you can test this if you have a friend or family member with a semi gaming computer with a 400W+ PSU.

If you can test it and it works then I'd suggest this PSU, good quality for the price after MIR.

If it doesn't work in another system then maybe the card is faulty.

I think minimum recommended PSU for an RX 460 is 350W+.

If the system is in fact underpowered (I agree with previous posts) you somehow risk of instability and even bricking your card or other components.

If you want to buy a PSU do not skimp. It's the most important part of the PC I'd say. A low quality PSU can take other components down with it when it dies and they often die sooner than expected.
