  1. I would go with option #4 since you are not a gamer. The first two options provide a GPU that isn't needed for a non-gamer. The 3rd option is an acceptable option, as well.
  2. thanks, tecmo. i should mention that i do use a lot of intensive video and audio editing programs. does this affect your opinion?
  3. Those programs are more dependent on your RAM & CPU than your graphics card. Depending on your Apps, I would look at the GTX 450 for CUDA support.
  4. thanks, tecmo. browsing around those cards now.
