I need a video card recommendation for a ASUS P6TSE mb and i7 920 cpu build. I do not do any gaming. The system will be used for general AUTOCAD 2D work and Office App's. Some video editing and photography also. I currently run dual monitors. I'd like the biggest bang for my buck under $250.00. Resolution 1920 x 1200 and greater. I thought about a lowend workstation card but I believe I can get more for my money from a gaming card? Thoughts? Comments? Recommendations pleae? Thanks.

Even a low-mid range workstation GPU will work much better for CAD work than a high-end gaming GPU. Here's a couple to consider:
