I just saw a review on this and I'm drawing a blank. First, for displaying the info only it doesn't matter. Even onboard graphics will do the same job. Second, same apps can make use of CUDA and apply filters faster then the CPU can. It was either the GTS450 or the GTX460 that provided the best bang for buck. Yes the GTX470/480 was faster, but only by a few seconds so its not worth the extra $$$. Check your software and see if you can use CUDA. If you can, a GTS450 might be what you want. If none of your software does, anything really will work.
