Don't do that! Is it really that hard to understand?

If there's not enough juice,

you can get random lockups (data loss).
You may even fry your PC completely,

or if your PSU was built to last
the cards is just "down clocked" and some "advanced" 3D features are
disabled => (less performance).

You should really buy a better PSU. (but please, stay away from those super cheap 400W things!)
