LOL - foolish tech support guy - yeah I guess you would need to raise it to 2V

But on a more serious note - you don't play with this - leave it as it is, your videocard is based on the normal PCIe specifications so why the hell did he tell you that, beats me - they hire anybody I guess. You either have a faulty card or your PSU does not provide enough amperage to your card - before buying a graphics card always check its power rating and what is required - and do the same for your PSU, make sure it exceeds the rating of your components combined, to avoid always running under stress. Might be helpful for you to post more information.
