It's an 18 watt card.
If you need a reccomendation for a psu to power an entire system, it usually helps to provide the rest of the specs.

Odds are with a system you are using that card in, a 430w PSU wil lsuit your needs VERY well.

I concur with the others, post the resat of your system specs. My hunch is that a 430w is enough because you likely don't have too much stacked behind a card that minimal but, I suppose you never know. I've got one of those 1x cards but it's used along side other, power hungry gear so a 430w is not a good choice for MY scenario. Your mileage may vary though so, give us your specs.

Thanks you, all of you, but i just needed to know how much watts that GC needed..
because i was going to buy a 350W power supply.. and the total Watts for all the componant i chose so far was 280W, so i had to make sure that zotac GC was under 100W. :)
