What Graphic Card should I choose?

I want to know which gfx card i should choose, I only wish to edit HD video and photos and do some light gaming:playing need for speed,Dirt and Grid.
I'm in the process of picking parts so any recommendations would be great my budget is about 500 but will stretch to 600 if i have to.

  1. Almost any modern graphic card will do the job for video editing. For gaming, you will need a pretty substantial card, though. And since a gfx card is the most power hungry component in an average gaming system, we need to know the make/model of your PSU.

    I actually don't have a psu yet I'm still looking at parts. what psu do you recommend?
  3. Use this chart of PSUs in tier form to pick the best you can afford. The wattage will depend on what you decide on for a GPU and CPU mainly. Any good quality PSU of 500W or better will be sufficient for a system with a $500 - $600 budget. The resolution you intend to game at will determine how much card you need to invest in. 1080p? 720P? something in between?
