why would you consider buying a gt430? please tell me what made this thought come into your head? have you read a review of it? they are sloww and poor value for money. get an ati 5570 ddr5 low profile http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/geforce-gt-430-gf10.... List the full specs of your pc so we can determine if your psu may blow up, including the PSU's 12v amp rating.

im buying this card mainly for media playback from what ive seen on youtube....it gives me the idea that this is the ideal card for my low profile pc

could this be it -12v = 0.3a max - +12v = 14a max

no, you dont want a 5450, you wont be playing games on that card, just watching a slide show.
14a (max) on 12v rail = 168W max on the 12v.
5570 total system under load 175w from the wall http://www.anandtech.com/show/2935/13
so assuming your psu is in good condition and not faulty, you should be ok
