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.

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.
