hey vdr369, there are lots of compatible graphics cards. Could I get more information such as what sort of processor do you have? What is your PC being used for? And how much you are willing to spend?

Off the bat Ill suggest a few that would work for moderate gaming etc:

XFX HD-577A-ZNFC Radeon HD 5770 (Juniper XT) 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

MSI N460GTX Twin Frozr II SOC GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) 768MB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video …

Can't tell you much without knowing what your budget is, what resolution you use and what you want to do with the card.

A 450w PSU is more than ample for a good video card for the applications you use - providing it is a good quality PSU. What is the make and model?

Upgradevideocards.com has good information about identifying system requirements, including power, and selecting video cards, with specific recommendations for non-gaming video cards:

What programs do you use for media editing? nVidia cards have special features that can substantial accelerate some video editing features in Adobe Premiere and some other applications.

Overclock.net provides a good description and benchmarks for video card acceleration in CS4.

Adobe CS5 added acceleration for multiple applications with the Mercury Playback Engine which is designed specifically for more recent nVidia cards with the CUDA feature set.
