Default 6600gt

i just got a geforce 6600gt (agp) video card and my power supply doesn't meet the requirements... my friend has a 350 watt power supply that he would give me, but first, i would want to know if a 350 watt power supply would power a geforce 6600gt, two harddrives, a cdrom drive and a usb 2.0 hub... that's about all that's in my pc... what do you think? will it be reliable?

It should be alright, correct..
How much is your current power supply where it is not enough to power all of those devices?

Im gonna have to agree too, i think 350W is enough. A 6600GT doesn't use a whole lot of power, not like the high end cards like the 7800 series or 1900 series(ATI).
