I wouldn't use an old low end power supply like that on such a power hungry card like Vega 64 it is asking it to fail.

Navi we don't have a clue yet as to how high its power draw is but with the newer Linux drivers confirming it as another GCN architecture it is likely to be in the same power draw range as the cards it is replacing.

The Vega 64 is a power hungry card. I'd opt for a larger PSU.
