Default Sapphire ati hd 5450 Power Draw for HTPC

Currently i want to buy the sapphire ati hd 5450 and i was wonderig if it will work good in my 220 watt HTPC i seen some information of this only needing the PCI slot to be powered and only use`s 6 watts whe in idle and 20 watts underload so do you think it will be safe to put this in my slim line pc of only 220 watts? ps the card doesnt have a fan either its heat sinc thanks

As you found out on the AMD forums already, yes, it will be fine.

I had one running in a Dell SFF, psu couldn't have been much more than 220 watts. You should be fine.
