Please recommend me a good graphics card

Sorry to ask such a difficult question but could somebody recommend me a card. I dont want it for games. I do a lot with Photoshop and watch a few dvds on my viewsonic monitor. Dont mind spending a few quid but not too much. Probably going to be a PCI card as I'm shortly to recive my new mobo

Hope you can help me

Thanks

  1. Photoshop?

    If you never, ever will play any games buy the cheapest Radeon or Geforce you can find. You might want to go with a Radeon, their cheap cards have good display quality and good DVD playback.

    You should look for a Radeon X300SE, that's probabbly the cheapest PCI-express card you sould find.
  2. grab the ATI x1300. it can do all that, and is a encoding beast. it's should be just as cheap as the x300, but way better architechture.
  3. Well, the X300 can be had for about $45, the X1300 can be had for about $90.

    The X1300 is much nicer if you plan to play alot of DVDs or Video. Other than that, Photoshop won't show a difference.
