I recently got my DH61AG and a PCI-e x4 -> x16 adapter. I am now stuck with the Graphics card decision and was wondering if anyone could enlighten me as to how my plan below would go.

The Problem:
The x4 slot is only rated for 25W limiting my Card choice to a Radeon 5450 or 6450 As they seem to be the only <25W Cards
My Solution:
Make an Adapter from to go from the sata power cable and a 12v fan pin to a 6pin PCIe, which i think should allow me to run(?)
Something like a Radeon 7770 or GTX 650 as both their ~80W

The adapter supplied is this


This is what i was thinking of doing


Anyone know if this would work and more to the point if it would be safe.
