The 25W reference is only on startup read link

"EDIT: Okay, I tracked this down. It is 25 Watts on bootup, then maximally 75 watts after driver loaded (power draw configured) and in application. So you should be fine with at 7750."

Typically a PCI slot is good for 75 watts. However if your manual states your small form factor @25 watts, then I guess it's prob correct for that board.

A 5570 is rated at 39 watts, so your MB can't supply it's needs

The 900 MHz version of the 6450 would be the closest(27 watts).
