If a song tells me to play a power chord, can I just play a major shaped Barre chord depending on what string the root note is on?

eg

instead of an F#5, I just play a F# barre chord only hitting the bottom 3 strings.

cheers

thats what the powerchord is...root note, fifth and octave...I favor the two string version though without the octave
