Is the computer supposed to stay on or off?

The 230W supplys the Graphics Card, however doing this can cause numerous issues including bricking your GPU, CPU or Motherboard... dont do it... if you did.. please provide a bit of context and paint us a picture of whats wrong after the fact.
For the record you will likely lose your display because its outputting through the GPU and not the onboard graphics driver, I also highly recommend not having both plugged in at the same time.

No I wasn't going to do it. I was just wondering because I recently received the official 180W power supply from ASUS and was curious whether or not I have to move the jumpers back to the original setting (middle, right) from (left, middle) in order for it to acknowledge the extra power supply. However I know if I did that, the GPU wouldn't be recognizable I think.
