Temporarily use old PSU?

I have a new build coming in the mail, with an i5 6600k and an MSI RX 480 8gb Gaming X. I ordered an EVGA 650W G2, but it won't be here until Tuesday, and I anticipate building my new PC this Sunday. Will using my existing 600w Ultra LSP suffice just for two days? It is currently running an amd a6 3500 Oc'd with a gtx 750 1gb non ti with no problems. I know I don't want to use that psu for very long on my expensive build, but I want to know if 2 days will push the risk too much. http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/640x480q90/924/6VxV7r.jpg

No, I don't think that's a very good PSU to be honest....

It should be fine for just a couple days for basic computing. I wouldn't do any serious gaming or stress tests, but chrome and a couple indie games should be fine.

I wouldn't take the risk. Just be patient.
