i think you didn´t read the link Bill sended earlier Zealous,
the 950 itselfs already requires 380W, so a 350W PSU won´t work!!
I was basing my figures on this :) ... ifications
Don't believe nVidia's website. Their website lists a GTX 1080 FE card as taking 180 watts, but actual stress power consumption for a Founder's Edition was around 270 watts according to reviewers. Tbh nvidia have a vested interest to massage their power draws and in any case most figures don't cover the peak 0.1% highs, only average-under-load.

The 950 cards seem to average-high 270 watts and will have 0.1% highs upwards of that: ... review/15/
