Clock speed doesn't mean everything.

Either way, every video card has it's limits. It's not the PSU. Yes, overclocking would use more power, but not so much that a 350W PSU would blow out.

The video card isnt getting enough voltage, like a cpu, it need more voltage to overclock.

If you buy a second PSU your going to have to find somewhere to fit it, mod them or buy an adapter so they start up at the same time, and it's not really going to make much difference.

Look at it this way - you've bought a mid range card, and your PSU can easily handle it, but your tricking yourself into thinking you've got an amazing PC and the PSU can't cope.

It can.
you dont need to buy somthing.




Just take a grabage tie and connect them both like that and there you go a psu starting up when you power it up in the back
