If gaming is totally out of the picture then any video that can do DX 10 (assuming you're using Vista) will do.

A Radeon HD 4650 is a good choice if you think you will be doing some lite gaming in the near future. Otherwise look at something like a HD 4350/4550 or GeForce 9400/9500.

If you are planning to upgrade to a 1920x1080 / 1920x1200 LCD monitor, or connect the PC to an HDTV to watch Blu-Ray movies, then get the HD 4650 because it outputs better quality videos than the other mentioned video cards. Video quality is subjective to a certain point so if you don't want to spend a few $$ more for the HD 4650 then any of the other cards should do.
