Hi,


If you use 2 PSUs with the different wattage in the same chassis then you can not use them in redundant mode which is default.

You can use 2 different PSUs in the same chassis in combined mode only.

It will work ... as long as the bigger PSU doesn't fail.    In regards to the status of the line cards will depend on what they are.
