At present I have a Dell XPS 8300 with an ATI 5450 card installed, however it appears this card has been causing my system to suddenly freeze up(long story,but i believe its confirmed).I don't game at all on my system,the only labour intensive thing i do is photo editing,just photos(CS5 & Lightroom).Am not really knowledgeable about GPU's am looking for a Nvidia equivalent to the 5450 or better yet your suggestion on what I should be looking at getting.
Thank you in advance

i know that infact thats the only time the freezing hasn't occurred, but I have a monitor with a DVI input,which i would prefer to use for the resolution advantage.

GT220 or GT240 depending on how much you want to spend. If your copy of PS is new enough you might want to consider getting a bigger GPU as you can use it to apply the filters instead of your CPU. Its a lot faster on the GPU then the CPU. You'll need something like the GTS250/450 however, so you might need a PSU upgrade as well.

yea I know, sorry if I confused you but what am trying to say is that the 5450 card that I have is making my system freeze, I want to replace it with a nvidia card of similar power and performance
